More than 1,000 U.S. rabbis have signed a letter calling on elected officials to welcome refugees.
The letter, sponsored by HIAS, the lead Jewish body dealing with immigration issues, said the rabbis are “alarmed to see so many politicians declaring their opposition to welcoming refugees.”
Rabbis in 46 states as well as Washington, D.C., are among the signers. A condensed version of the letter and the full list of rabbis who signed on to it will appear in the print editions of Politico and the daily Forward on Thursday.
