The Chicago Board of Rabbis has issued a response to the recent ruling from some community rabbis in Israel that forbids leasing property to non-Jews. In the wake of the widespread criticism and rejection of this ruling from both the political and religious realms, Israel has reaffirmed and shown its ongoing commitment to the civil rights of all of its citizens.

The CBR works:
• To enhance the interest of k’lal Yisrael in the Chicago area, in the United States, in Israel and wherever Jews may be.
• To encourage and promote Rabbinic growth and development through continued and expanded opportunities for study and communal service.
• To raise and maintain standards of the Rabbinic profession and strengthen the bonds of fellowship among its members.
• To foster united action among Rabbis, with due regard to the autonomy of the various Rabbinic groupings; to the halachic discipline of the individual members and their loyalty to their respective Rabbinic organizations.
• To interpret the role of the Rabbi as a guide to his/her people and a guardian of the religious interests of Chicago Jewry in all its endeavor.
The CBR promotes and enriches Jewish learning and living through programming and its work supporting the Jewish Healing Network of Chicago, administered by Jewish Child & Family Services in collaboration with CJE SeniorLife, the Chicago Board of Rabbis and Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, Jewish Chaplains in area hospitals, and as co-producers with the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago of Sanctuary, a quarterly television show.
