NEW YORK - Rabbi Eric Yoffie, president of the Union for Reform Judaism, the largest synagogue movement in the county, is calling on Israel to enact a construction freeze in eastern Jerusalem.

He expressed his views during remarks to rabbis and members of URJ's board of trustees on Thursday.

"There is also a substantive question of great importance that needs to be addressed: Should Israel continue to build now in East Jerusalem? I believe that it should not," Yoffie said.
