AJU's President Jeff Herbst writes in the Jewish Journal and discusses the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) calling for a "humanitarian pause" in the Israel-Hamas conflict. The URJ's request is for Israel to unconditionally cease hostilities to allow for the swift release of hostages and the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza. The article also highlights concerns about the effectiveness of such a pause, potential repercussions, and the broader issues related to the conflict, including the security threats posed by Hamas and Hezbollah to Israel.
