“Reform Judaism is at the forefront of standing up to these kinds of bullies and abusers, and we have consistently demonstrated this. We know that there are many who express their anger and hurt far more constructively.
“People who act abusively will never have any influence over our decision making processes.”
Rabbi Janner-Klausner has previously warned that online targeting of the Kaddish participants – including death threats – was a “path to self-destruction”.

It's a tragedy what is happening to the Palestinians and those who support them. Rabbi Janner-Klausner's statement should be an example to christian zionists to also call for an end to violence of any kind.

Allegedly, there are already plans to seize the ship as per an article in the Jerusalem Post.
