Arms Control and Jewish Values
As Jews we have always been firmly committed to the belief that nations must "beat their swords into plowshares" and that people must act toward one another in a spirit of kindness and humanity.

As Jews we have always been firmly committed to the belief that nations must "beat their swords into plowshares" and that people must act toward one another in a spirit of kindness and humanity. Moreover, we recognize our unique role as active participants in bringing about this era of peace and harmony. We must ?seek peace and pursue it? (Psalms 34:15). As a result, the Reform Jewish Movement has long advocated policies designed to curb the loss of life resulting from armed conflicts.
