Reform, Conservative Jews warn PM of future violence against them

The heads of the Reform and Conservative movements in Israel and abroad write a sharp letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, castigating him over several policy concerns and warning of future violence against their members in Israel.

The letter railed at “the lack of progress regarding the Western Wall outline, along with the advancement in the Knesset of the mikva law,” the movements say in a statement.

“The heads of the organizations warned the prime minister of a severe deterioration in Jewish-Diaspora relations,” the statement says, “and even expressed fears of violence and even, God forbid, bloodshed as a result of the unfettered, ongoing incitement by ultra-Orthodox ministers and Knesset members against Reform and Conservative Judaism and against the Women of the Wall.”
