Synagogue movements team to raise awareness on Iran | JTA – Jewish & Israel News

Synagogue movements from across the denominational spectrum are jointly calling on American Jews to “make Iran a matter of the highest priority.”

Organizations representing the Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist movements made their pronouncement in a joint statement issued Sept. 4. The statement also outlines “Eight Actions to Stop a Nuclear Iran” — including posting signage at synagogues and bringing up the issue in interfaith dialogue — and urges the U.S. government to increase “economic and diplomatic pressure” against the Iranian regime.

Jewish communal leaders say the statement is part of an effort modeled on the Soviet Jewry campaign to build widespread awareness inside and outside the Jewish community of the threat posed by Iran.
