Jewish organizations demand Biden get a cease fire

Staffers at Jewish organizations across the country pressed President Biden on a cease-fire in the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militant group Hamas in an open letter.

“We are individuals who work for a wide array of Jewish organizations across the United States, coming together across the broad range of beliefs, practices, backgrounds and identities that make up the rich fabric of the American Jewish community,” they write in the letter, which was first obtained by NBC News.

“We are uniting together in this moment to call for a ceasefire, the release of all hostages, and a commitment towards a long-term political solution that ensures the freedom and collective safety of Israelis and Palestinians,” the letter continues.

The letter has more than 500 signatures, featuring the names of rabbis, members of advocacy groups such as Jewish Voice for Peace, IfNotNow and J Street, and members of synagogues.
