As you may know the Palestinian Authority is attempting to have the United Nations vote on a resolution that would grant them statehood. Our Reform movement has always supported a just and secure peace for our people as well as for the Palestinian people in a two states for two peoples end-of-conflict resolution to all issues between them. The Reform movement also has stood by negotiations between the two sides to reach an agreement and eschews unilateral actions as an obstacle to progress towards peace.

ARZA (the Association of Reform Zionists of America) is circulating a petition on this subject on behalf of all the arms of our American Reform movement. I ask you to read this petition, to sign it and to share it with your friends. You can  print and post it in a public space or simply forward this email with a link below along with this explanation.
