ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the criticism of advertisements by Reform and Conservative congregants in which 41 Reform Jews accused Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President at the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), of divisive leadership over the rejection of the pro-peace pro-Israel group J Street in the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in Jewish newspapers. Advertisement mentions diminishing of the American Jewry's support for Israel and differences about Israel's foreign policy.
