Thank Your Representative for Hyde-Capps Support!
Dear Friend of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom,
Our letters made a difference! Together we reached out to 181 different Congressional offices and a total of 108 Representatives, including yours, signed on to the Hyde-Capps letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, commending her personal involvement in negotiating the opening of the Rafah border crossing.
If you have not already done so, it is important to thank your Representative not only as a courtesy, but also to affirm to him or her that you follow closely issues related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and will persist in encouraging him or her to support similar Congressional efforts in the future. Send a thank you note today! Take Action!
Please share this Action Alert with family, friends, and colleagues whose Representatives have also signed on.
When Members of Congress stand up to support the peace process, they need to know that American Jews will stand behind them.

Subject: Thank You for Signing the Hyde-Capps Letter Supporting Secretary Rice's Work for Peace
Dear Representative [name automatically inserted here],
As an American Jew, I am writing to thank you for signing the Hyde-Capps letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. A bipartisan coalition of 108 Representatives joined together to commend Secretary Rice for successfully negotiating the opening of the Rafah border crossing and to encourage her to stay personally involved in the peace process.
Last month, Secretary Rice brokered an historic agreement between Israelis and Palestinians that opened up the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt. This effort will help to rebuild the Gaza economy, which is crucial for the possibility of building a stable Palestinian state that can be a viable partner for peace with Israel. It will also advance US national security interests in the region by strengthening the efforts of the Palestinian Authority and countering the appeal of extremists.
Thank you for your support of Israel and the peace process by signing on to the Hyde-Capps letter.
