Obama to Address Reform Jews

On The Radar

President Obama will speak next week to a large gathering of North American Jews, the Union of Reform Judaism announced on Tuesday. The group, which is considered more liberal than the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee, will hold its annual meeting Dec. 14-16 in the Washington area. Israel’s defense minister, Ehud Barak and Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the House Republican leader, will also speak to the 6,000 people expected at the conference.
