The Mordecai Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood stands by the State of Israel during this time of war. We mourn the loss of over 1200 Israelis and the serious injury to many more and pray for the return of 240 hostages. We also regret the loss of life of Palestinian innocents.
We know that a true and lasting peace will not be achieved until there is a just, negotiated political solution that protects the human rights of everyone. We urge that enlightened leadership on each side bring this about.
