Rabbi Saperstein Urges Progressive Religious Community to Speak out on Judicial Nominations
February 24, 2009 - Posted by The Leadership Conference
Rabbi David Saperstein, director and counsel of the Religious Action Center on Reform Judaism, recently wrote a guest blog on The Huffington Post urging the progressive religious community to join other progressive organizations in pushing for the nomination of fair and independent judges to federal courts.
"Sitting out vital debates about judicial nominees jeopardizes the crucial gains we have made and will make in the legislative arena. We need to ensure the appointment of judges who will uphold an expansive interpretation of the law as it applies to our fundamental rights and the separation of church and state," said Saperstein.
