Union for Reform Judaism undecided about nuke deal

A reform US Jewish umbrella group says it will wait and see how the Iran nuclear deal pans out before arriving at a decision on the matter. The Union for Reform Judaism says in a statement that it will release an opinion only after further consultation with “trusted experts”.

“In the coming days and weeks, we will go back to our trusted experts and continue to consult with our constituencies to better understand the consequences of this proposed agreement. We urge all committed parties to take similar, carefully considered approaches before rushing to conclusions,” the statement reads.

“As Congress moves forward, we will share our opinion on the viability of this agreement to achieve our goals, that the final agreement will put the optimal standard for restraints on Iran, preventing a nuclear-armed Iran, protecting the security of the United States, Israel and our allies around the world,” it continues.
