Letter: Pass a cease-fire resolution

We, the undersigned, are Anchorage Jews in strong support of the Anchorage Assembly passing a resolution for an immediate, permanent, bilateral ceasefire. As Jews, we have a duty to stand up against oppression in all its forms.

Tying the identity of every American Jew to the actions of the state of Israel is reductive. We do not condone the actions of the Israeli government. We do not condone the killing of children and other civilians, nor the bombings of hospitals and schools.

Opposing oppression of the innocent will strengthen our community. It is critical that we send a message that the Municipality of Anchorage, including members of the Jewish community, opposes this horrific violence.
