    We stand with the Israeli Members of Knesset, and political and human rights leaders who have called for Netanyahu to reverse his decision, and support the right of Representatives Omar and Tlaib and every other Member of Congress to visit Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories in order to educate themselves about the realities there.

    Joint Statement from T’ruah Rabbis in Rhode Island and members of The Board of Rabbis of Greater Rhode Island

    We denounce and call for an investigation into the actions of the employees of this for-profit facility. We will remain steady in our commitment to nonviolent action, even in the face of such callous disregard for the lives and safety of our friends, congregants, students, and neighbors. As those of us present sang many times that evening, “Olam chesed yibaneh: We will build this world from love.”
