The struggle for democratic pluralism in Israel is of transcendent importance to the
Jewish people throughout the world. Current pressures and trends in Israel give no
clear indication as to the final resolution of this struggle.
the Central Conference of American Rabbis
We, the members of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, express our gratitude to all who have chosen to offer their moral and spiritual support to those trends and movements within Israel which are committed to the shaping of a free and open society within a Jewish State.
We note with dismay the increasingly virulent pressures being generated
from the United States by the Lubavitcher Movement. We believe that the intensity of the Lubavitcher opposition to democratic forces in Israel and the separation of Church and State in the United States, must be made manifest to all members of our congregations and communities. We call upon ARZA, the CCAR, and the UAHC to continue to publicize the extent and the nature of all such anti-pluralistic activities.
