WE STAND WITH ISRAEL
The worldwide Reform Movement is standing in solidarity with the people and State of Israel. We pray for an end to the war, healing for those injured, and the safe return of all those taken captive by Hamas.
The RJCC is partnered with the Union for Reform Judaism. As we follow the developing news in Israel, we urge you to keep up to date on what we are doing and ways you can help by frequently visiting: Reform Judaism.org
