Rabbis for Israel Mission Statement

Mission Statement
This is worth signing!  The statement says in part: "We, the undersigned, believe that Israel has a legitimate right to exist as a sovereign, democratic Jewish state in the historic homeland of the Jewish people. We support a peaceful and just resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict that will recognize two independent states, a Jewish state of Israel and a Palestinian state, living side by side in peace, security and prosperity.  We call upon the Arab and Muslim world to accept unequivocally and publicly Israel’s permanent right to exist in peace."  Amen.

Announcing - We Are For Israel - Sign On!

WeAreForIsrael.org and WeAreForIsrael.wordpress.com

Shalom All,

An important group is already gaining much press coverage but hitherto was restricted to RABBIS per se. Seeing the original web-site, others (i.e., non-Rabbis) felt excluded from joining a movement that they found uniquely desirable for themselves as well.

The group, originally named "Rabbis for Israel," was founded by the highly-respected Israeli progressive Rabbi, Micky Boyden. This has gathered by now close to 300 names in less than a month. I have been working closely with Micky to expand this organization.

At the least this path-breaking organization will be something to schmooze about at the Erev Rosh Hashanah oneg! Please go to EITHER:

http://WeAreForIsrael.wordpress.com/ or http://WeAreForIsrael.org

The old site for Rabbis for Israel is not longer being used.

With best wishes.

-David
