The following Jewish denominations either oppose or do not support the death penalty:

  • The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America–“We support putting an execution moratorium in place and the creation of a commission to review America’s death penalty procedures and any reforms needed to ensure that our justice system lives up to that name.”
  • The Rabbinical Assembly–“The Rabbinical Assembly oppose the adoption of death penalty laws and urge their abolition in states that have already adopted them.”
  • Reform Judaism–“The Reform Movement, however, has followed rabbinic interpretations that effectively abolished the death penalty centuries ago.”
