Yesterday, Rav Avi Weiss and the Jewish activist organization he founded, AMCHA: the Coalition for Jewish Concerns, coordinated a civil disobedience protest at the United Nations.
Around 50 rabbis and rabbinical students, as well as a lay communal leader or few, participated in the protest. They prepared themselves in a staging area near the Iranian Mission to the UN putting on talleisim and distributing signs and after a few short speeches and rounds of slogan-shouting, they marched, singing Am Yisraeil Hhai, to the steps that go down past the Isaiah Wall across the street from the UN buildings.

A student told his professor he was going to "Palestine" to "fight for freedom, peace and justice,"Orwellian leftist code words that mean "murder Jews."
While I heartily sympathize with the anti-Iranian sentiments of these rabbis I'd far rather see protests demanding U.S. pull out of the UN than protests demanding the expulsion of any one member. The organization is a criminal one, and we should have no part of it.
to say the least
This is the “Whole” Point. Such unity shows there is major concern, the Iranian situation is a volatile and imminent situation that must be taken care of now.
Here’s part of the excerpt:
In an unusual show of unity, 22 Jewish leaders Orthodox, Conservative and Reform are briefly jailed for anti-Iran protest outside the UN.
Rabbi Avi Weiss is this generation’s Rabbi Kahane. I mean this with the utmost respect for Rabbi Kahane and what he sacrificed for Klal Yisrael.
Hi Salem. Have I been dropped from your ping list? Haven’t seen anything for awhile. Anyway, if I was dropped, please add me back on.
