U.S. Rabbis Urge Obama to Push For Gaza Cease-Fire
Thursday, January 15, 2009 :A coalition of American rabbis and other religious, cultural and community leaders bought a full-page ad in the New York Times on Wednesday calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and for President-Elect Barack Obama to convene an international Middle East peace conference. The initiative was led by Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun magazine.
Lerner said the group had to buy ad space because the nation’s major newspapers are not giving room for this perspective.
