Civility, for Jewish groups

Gathering in Dallas in February for the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, delegates from 61 national and community groups agreed to civility despite internal disagreements over Middle East policy, health-care reform and other polarizing issues.

Steve Gutow, JCPA executive director, said clashes within the American Jewish community promoted a resolution on civility. In other action, delegates agreed to confront proposed boycotts, divestment and sanctions related to Israel, and to ask Congress to overturn the military's "don't ask/don't tell" policy.
