Washington DC May 5, 2006 - In response to today’s signing of a peace agreement to bring an end to the violence in Darfur, Sudan, Rabbi David Saperstein, Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, issued the following statement:

Today’s peace agreement is an encouraging step toward the end of the atrocities that have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and displaced millions in the Darfur region of Sudan. Each day that has passed without an agreement has seen more deaths and destruction. We are hopeful that today’s agreement will save lives and serve as the beginning of a lasting peace. We will continue to work on behalf of the people of Darfur and urge continued pressure on all parties in the international community to bring about a permanent end to the crisis in Darfur.
