Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism, recently visited Israel with the Conference of Presidents of American Jewish Organizations. It was an unscheduled trip that came together in the wake of the recent situation between Israel and Gaza, “Operation Pillar of Defense.”
Yesterday, Rabbi Jacobs offered his reflections on his trip. Here is the recording of that conference call.
While he was in Israel, Rabbi Jacobs met with members of the Israeli Reform community. He visited Kibbutz K’far Aza, which sits on the Gaza border. Here is a video where one kibbutz resident speaks of what life is like living so close to Gaza.
