The leader of the Reform movement’s political arm chastised Jewish community leaders for suggesting that Reform congregations should accept federal homeland security aid. Speaking at the Jewish Council for Public Affairs plenum Monday in Washington, Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism, said he is disappointed that community relations councils are telling Reform congregations that the money is available but not telling them that the Reform movement opposes the policy because it fears that the policy violates the separation of church and state.
