Resolutions on Human Rights

Posted on: Wednesday August 13, 2014

Each year the Rabbinical Assembly passes a number of resolutions on pressing matters impacting the countries and regions where we live, the State of Israel and the future of our shared world. Passing the resolutions allows the RA to take positions on inyanei d’yoma (issues of the day) in a variety of arenas including US domestic policy, and on occasion in other countries, global issues and matters affecting the State of Israel.

Below is a list of resolutions that the RA has passed with regards to matters of human rights.
