Clashes with Palestinians on Rise During Jewish Holy Days

Reports of stone-throwing attacks by Arab protesters have been on the rise in Jerusalem as Jews observed the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. At least two Israeli police were injured while on patrol.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• Republican lawmakers are threatening to shut down the government if sanctions are not re-imposed on Iran.
• This week Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow to discuss Russia’s involvement in the Syrian civil war.
• A new report says flawed U.S. intelligence has led the Pentagon to paint an overly optimistic picture of the ongoing fight against ISIS.
• At least one Israeli company has offered to help refugee families fleeing the violence in Syria.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features Fellowship Senior Vice President Yael Eckstein on the bridge-building efforts of her father, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein.
