Apartheid

Apartheid (Amended Resolution) (1986)

The position of Judaism with regard to apartheid has remained unchanged for more than 3000 years. The basic tenets of Judaism are totally irreconcilable with any form of racism and racial discrimination. We, as a people, have a collective historical experience of being the victim of discrimination and exclusion.

Therefore, Women’s League for Conservative Judaism condemns the policy of apartheid and urges its Affiliates to:

  1. Pursue a program of education reflecting Jewish teaching and the dangers of sustaining this oppressive system.
  2. Actively works to eliminate apartheid following Women’s League directives, in cooperation with recognized and responsible agencies.
