THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Rabbinical Assembly support Israel’s actions taken to protect its citizens; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Rabbinical Assembly applaud Israel’s declared intention to return to the negotiating table when Palestinian violence ends, and to cease Israeli military actions against Palestinians; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Rabbinical Assembly call for an end to violence and for a return to the negotiating table at that time.
