Washington, July 27, 2005 - Today the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC) launched the "Ask Judge Roberts" campaign. This effort, the first of its kind for the Center, is a web-based question bank providing an opportunity for Reform Jews, and all those who share an active interest in the future of our Supreme Court, to suggest questions that Senate Judiciary Committee members may ask during Judge John Roberts’ confirmation hearings. The Religious Action Center will then share these questions with Senators, highlighting the importance of a comprehensive and thorough examination of Judge Roberts’ record and views.

"America is at her best when each individual is enfranchised and heard, an ideal that our ‘Ask Judge Roberts’ initiative embodies," said Rabbi David Saperstein, Director of the RAC. "While it is the Senate’s responsibility to examine whether a nominee is worthy of a seat on our nation’s highest Court, it is the American people’s right and responsibility to help frame the debate. www.AskJudgeRoberts.com is an opportunity for the American people to give our ‘advise’ before the Senate is asked for its ‘consent.’"

The Religious Action Center’s "Ask Judge Roberts" campaign is located at www.AskJudgeRoberts.com.
