On July 31, 2018, the Reform Jewish Movement announced opposition to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. An examination of Judge Kavanaugh’s record makes it clear that his elevation to the Supreme Court would significantly jeopardize or adversely affect the most fundamental rights the Reform Movement has long supported. These rights, rooted deeply in enduring Jewish values as expressed in biblical, rabbinic, and modern sources, are specifically articulated in our Movement’s resolutions and illustrate our commitment to the principles of justice, equality, the rule of law, and compassion. The recent allegations of sexual assault by Judge Kavanaugh have added urgency to our concerns.
It is the Senate’s responsibility to provide advice and consent to the President’s nominee to the Supreme Court. In these final hours, tell your Senators to vote no on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
