As Jews, we understand what it means to be in exile. We also understand the obligation “not to stand idly by” when another bleeds. That’s why the desperate situation of the Rohingya minority in Burma calls out to us, demanding our attention and action. Please follow this link for more information on the Rohingya, and to sign a petition to Senator Jeff Flake, asking him to co-sponsor the Burma Human Rights and Freedom Act of 2018 (S. 2060). We can make a difference.
