JTA – Jewish leaders were among those arrested during a protest rally outside the Embassy of Sudan.
Rabbi Steve Gutow, the president of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs umbrella body, Rabbi David Saperstein, the director of the Reform movement’s Religious Action Center and Fred Kramer, who directs Jewish World Watch were among those arrested Friday.
The protest was being organized by several Jewish and human rights organizations to call on Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to immediately end a blockade on food and humanitarian aid from entering the country.
