Jewish Leaders Speak Out for Immigration Reform


In the midst of the Jewish High Holiday season, more than 1,000 rabbis and cantors urged Congress to find a way through the impasse on comprehensive immigration reform. This week, Jews have been celebrating Sukkot, which marks their ancestors’ exodus from Egypt during which they built temporary shelters. The Jewish leaders said their history, along with biblical instructions to care for strangers, compelled them to speak out for immigration reform.
