Dear President Clinton:

On behalf of EMUNAH OF AMERICA, we wish to express our deep disappointment in your decision of deny clemency to Jonathan Pollard.

In a country which advocates the ideals of compassion and redemption, Pollard's case is an aberration. He was sentenced to life in prison despite the government's promise not to seek such a penalty and despite sharp judicial criticism. Others who committed more grievous crimes against the government have not suffered so harsh a punishment.

Commuting Jonathan Pollard's sentence would be an act of great compassion and in no way compromise the security interests of the United States. I hope that next time the opportunity arises, you will make every effort to judge righteously concerning Mr. Pollard.

Yours respectfully,


Shirley Singer
Executive Director
