American rabbinical students studying in Israel delivered more than 700 letters expressing concern about settlement expansion to the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The letters, from American rabbis, cantors, rabbinical students, and cantorial students, are in response to the Israeli government's advancement of construction plans in the controversial E1 corridor between Maale Adumim in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

"All of us believe that the ultimate safety and security of Israel as a Jewish state will depend on reaching a peace agreement that also allows Palestinians to live safely and securely in their own state," the letters, delivered Monday morning, state.
