NEW YORK - The American Jewish Committee demanded on Friday that Tourism Minister Yariv Levin apologize to Reform Jews for declaring that “Reform Jews in the US are a dying world” last week.
The AJC stated that it “fully shares the outrage of the Reform movement” concerning the “disparaging remarks” of Levin, who opposes the construction of a new section at the Western Wall for pluralistic prayer.
“His words are both offensive and off-base," AJC Chief Executive Officer David Harris said on Friday. "He owes a heartfelt apology to millions of Jews, who care deeply about the Jewish future and the Jewish state's future."
