US Vice President Joe Biden has agreed to meet with Jewish communal leaders to discuss the case of Jonathan Pollard, one organizational official said.

Biden made the commitment at the end of a Rosh Hashanah reception with Jewish organizational leaders Wednesday, according to Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice-chairman of the Conference of President of Major American Jewish Organizations.

The New York Times recently reported that during an earlier meeting in Florida, Biden told a group of rabbis that “President Obama was considering clemency, but I told him, ‘Over my dead body are we going to let him out before his time.’”
