The world's largest organization of Jewish clergy has come out in support of Barack Obama’s call for a freeze on Israeli settlement expansion.

The Central Conference of American Rabbis, which represents nearly two thousand Reform rabbis in the US, said that a freeze on Israeli settlements is in the best interest of the United States and Israel.

KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg spoke with Rabbi Barry Block, who heads the Resolution Committee of the Central Conference.
