New Jersey – Rabbis Want Death Penalty Killed.

7 12 2007

New Jersey – Some 50 rabbis in this state, including a number from this area, have written to the New Jersey Legislature urging it to abolish the death penalty.

The legislature is poised to decide on this issue by the end of the current legislative session, Jan. 8, one year after the 13-member New Jersey Death Penalty Study Commission recommended that the practice be abolished.

The rabbinic letter, together with a list of signatories, can be found at [jstandard]
