Annapolis - Rabbinic support

(Title is shortened to fit in a single line in the archives panel)

Brit Tzedek v'Shalom
Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace

November 20 , 2007


CHICAGO—The American Jewish peace movement celebrated major gains this week, mobilizing the support of 135 Members of Congress and more than 500 Jewish clergy for the upcoming Annapolis conference as an opportunity to revive the long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and counting a new ally amongst their ranks - AIPAC.

The signatures in support of the Annapolis conference—the first U.S. brokered summit between Israeli, Palestinian and Arab leaders in seven years, now tentatively scheduled for early next week—were amassed through two separate initiatives: a call from rabbis and cantors nationwide organized by Brit Tzedek v’Shalom and a bi-partisan Congressional letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, sponsored by Representatives Gary Ackerman (D-NY) and Charles Boustany (R-LA).

In both cases, Brit Tzedek, the country’s largest and most vibrant grassroots Jewish peace organization, activated its network of 37,000 people across the country to convey to their elected and religious leadership that American Jews not only overwhelmingly support a negotiated, two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but want to see their leaders play an active role in achieving it. A recent poll conducted by Zogby International (June 4, 2007) shows that 87% of American Jews support a two-state solution, while 68% are more likely to support a candidate who promises to take an active role in the peace process.

Five hundred eighteen national pulpit, academic and organizational rabbis and cantors and rabbinic and cantoral students from all major denominations of American Judaism signed on to Brit Tzedek’s rabbinic call—“Kindle the Lights of Peace”— first released only 10 days ago. The Chanukah themed appeal draws on the story of the oil that burned for eight days to remind the community that "even when circumstances appear grim - perhaps especially then - hope and courage are vital."

The signers urge the Jewish community to use the rekindled excitement generated by Annapolis to inspire engagement of the candidates during the upcoming election year, realizing, as Rabbi John Friedman, chair of Brit Tzedek’s Rabbinic Cabinet says, that "for the Annapolis talks to become something other than a well-meaning gesture, it is essential that we, as a community, make clear to the current Administration and the one that will succeed it that the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is vital to the interests of all those who live in the region, and the American people."

Among the call’s many prominent signers were Yitzhak Greenberg, former Chairman of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council; Burton L. Visotzky, Professor, Jewish Theological Seminary; Paul Menitoff, Executive Vice-President Emeritus, Central Conference of American Rabbis; and Toba Spitzer, President, Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association.

“We must make it a priority to demonstrate that a ‘pro-Israel’ candidate is one who both calls unambiguously for a negotiated two-state solution, and has a realistic and robust plan to make it happen," Friedman adds.

Brit Tzedek applauded the Ackerman-Boustany letter sent yesterday to Secretary Rice as an example of proactive, pro-peace leadership the group advocates. The letter expresses support for the Annapolis conference as a “critical opportunity” to reinvigorate the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and urges that “robust, hands-on U.S. leadership and diplomacy is necessary to frame not only on what transpires at the meeting, but on what takes place before and after it.”

"We welcome Representatives Ackerman and Boustany’s impressive initiative expressing the sentiments of the overwhelming majority of American Jews who strongly support U.S.-backed initiatives aimed at reaching a negotiated, two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” says Brit Tzedek president Steve Masters. “Israel's long-term peace and security require that this conference succeed and the support of the U.S. Congress is a critical factor for ensuring the success over the long haul of this vital peace process."

In a mass mobilization, Brit Tzedek activists from across the country contacted hundreds of Congressional offices to advocate that their representatives support this initiative. The group also worked collaboratively with the other groups who favor a negotiated, two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict— including Americans for Peace Now, Israel Policy Forum, Arab American Institute, American Task Force on Palestine and Churches for Middle East Peace—to build support for the letter both on the Hill and among their respective constituencies.

Ultimately, 135 Representatives signed the letter including more than 1/3 of Congress’ Jewish delegation, among them Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Henry Waxman (D-CA), dean of the Jewish House members. In addition, the entire delegation from Massachusetts, where three of Brit Tzedek’s strongest chapters are located, signed the letter.

The letter also garnered the support the Union for Reform Judaism (representing American Judaism’s largest denomination), the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation and, perhaps most unexpectedly, that of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which has typically resisted U.S. initiatives aimed at encouraging American leadership in renewing Israeli- Palestinian negotiations.

"The hard work will start the day after Annapolis. That's when the world will be watching to see how serious all the parties - Israeli, Palestinian, American - really are about peace," said Steve Masters, President of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom. "Our efforts to mobilize support for Annapolis demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt to the White House, to Members of Congress, and to the presidential candidates that American Jews stand behind genuine peace efforts."

Text of the call:
As we approach the festival of Chanukah, we American rabbis and cantors call on the American Jewish community to rekindle our commitment to Israeli-Palestinian peace. When we light candles at this darkest time of the year, may we nurture hope for a lasting peace settlement after too many years of violence and despair. If we learn anything from the story of Chanukah, it is that even when circumstances appear grim - perhaps especially then - hope and courage are vital.

At the upcoming Annapolis peace conference, the parties to the conflict will have their first substantive face-to-face meeting in nearly seven years to launch final-status negotiations. For many of us, the heady optimism and promise we felt while witnessing the Clinton peace talks seem like distant dreams. Yet, we must remain alert to the real opportunities emerging right now that need our support.

We urge the American Jewish community to stand behind the conference as it attempts to launch a negotiation process with the goal of a viable Palestinian state, living side-by side and in peace with a secure Israel. We cannot emphasize strongly enough that Israel's long-term peace and security require that this conference be a true starting point for a real, sustained peace process, one characterized by consistent U.S. diplomatic engagement and tangible improvements in living conditions and security for both Israelis and Palestinians.

The next American president will play a critical role in determining whether the results of steps initiated at Annapolis lay the foundation for a final status peace agreement. A large measure of our hopes for peace will be entrusted to whoever wins the 2008 election, and as such, it is crucial that we communicate to all the candidates that a truly pro-Israel president will, with the support of the vast majority of American Jews, do everything in his or her power to bring about a negotiated two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

May the spirit of peace and the light of justice illumine the vision of our leadership for the benefit of our people and our world this Chanukah.
