Hundreds of rabbis, and Jewish community leaders from across the US gathered on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to call on Congress to reject the Iran nuclear deal. 

The rally was organized by the Orthodox Union and the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA).

“The reason we are gathered here—in the shadow of the Capitol—is to make a clear statement that this deal is morally repugnant. Under this deal, the Iranian regime will be given greater legitimacy, power and money, despite its being deeply anti-American, anti-Semitic, and the leading sponsor of terrorism in the world,”  President of the Orthodox Union Martin Nachimson, said in his speech at the rally.
