Tell Israel and U.S.: Stop Arms Sales and Training to Burmese Military

Rabbis and cantors: Join the call for Israel and the United States to stop weapons sales and training to Burma's military. Israel continues to sell arms to Burma (Myanmar) despite its prosecution of a vicious campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rhoningya people. With this letter, we join a group of 55 Israeli rabbis and community leaders, along with Israeli human rights organizations, in calling for the Israeli government to halt its arms sales. We also join a bipartisan group of Congresspeople in calling for the United States to discontinue military training programs with the Burmese military.You can view a list of initial signatories below.  NOTE: THIS LETTER IS FOR RABBIS AND CANTORS ONLY
