Hundreds Of Rabbis Gather In Washington To Oppose Iran Nuclear Deal

September 9, 2015

Hundreds of rabbis and synagogue and community leaders from across the country gathered on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, September 9—in the midst of Congress’s debate over the Iran nuclear deal—to call on Congress to reject the bad deal that paves a pathway to a nuclear-armed Iran. The rally was organized by the Orthodox Union and the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA).

The rabbis at the rally—representing tens of thousands of members of the American Jewish community—came from more than 20 states and every region of the country.

Held just days before Rosh Hashanah and opening with a shofar blast, the rally was reminiscent of the historic Rabbis’ March in 1943—just days before Yom Kippur—in support of American and Allied action to stop the destruction of European Jewry.
