Canton rabbi joins others in message to President Elect

Canton Journal and Patriot Ledger

November 18, 2008

Canton rabbi Allison Berry joined 98 rabbis, cantors, and rabbinical students in the Boston area, and more than 800 from across the country to call on President-Elect Obama to make vigilant U.S. leadership in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict a top priority of his administration, reversing eight years of diplomatic neglect.

In a rabbinic open letter initiated by Brit Tzedek v’Shalom, the country’s largest grassroots Jewish grassroots peace movement, and sent initially to both presidential candidates, the signers pledged to mobilize support within the American Jewish community to the principle that “an American President who dedicates himself to the establishment of a durable Israeli-Palestinian peace acts in the best interests of Israel and the United States.”

For the text of the letter and a full list of signers, go to http://www.obamaletter.org

Brit Tzedek released the letter, entitled “Time to Choose Peace” as part of a larger election-focused campaign to build political and popular support in this country for advancing several actions key to the tenable resolution of the conflict in the Middle East, including a freeze on settlement expansion, a ceasefire and an end to the blockade on Gaza, the sharing of Jerusalem, and sustained U.S diplomatic engagement in ending the conflict.

The letter asserts that while the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is but one in a long list of challenges that the next president will inherit, ignoring it will only exacerbate the instability and tension in the Middle East, by increasing the influence of terrorist organizations of Hezbollah and Hamas and other extremists groups. The letter states: “It is difficult to calculate the damage that a downward spiral into fresh waves of violence could hold.”

The Boston chapter of Brit Tzedek v’Shalom includes over 3300 supporters. Nationally, Brit Tzedek, at more than 39,000 strong, mobilizes American Jews in support of a negotiated two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
