Reform divests from Iran


The Reform movement voted to divest from Iran.

The Union for Reform Judaism “is now calling on its congregations and their members to advocate on a grassroots level for the targeted divestment by states, municipalities, universities and mutual funds,” said a statement Monday, after URJ’s executive committee unanimously voted to divest from the Islamic Republic.

“The prospect of Iran developing nuclear weapons capability poses a serious concern to the United States, Canada, Israel and the international community,” said Jane Wishner, chair of the Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism.
