US Leaders Slam MK for Saying 'Reform Isn't Jewish'


Reform leaders in the U.S. are calling for the removal of MK David Rotem (Yisrael Beytenu) from the leadership of the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, after he said that Reform Judaism wasn't really “Jewish,” but a “different religion.”

Rick Jacobs, a top leader of the U.S. reform movement, said that Rotem's comments were “very serious” and “cannot be allowed to pass without action.”
