Dear Mr. President:

I had the pleasure of meeting you last March as a member of the Conference of Presidents. You impressed me then with your concern for justice, and you continue to impress me with your concern for people.

That is why I am writing you now on behalf of Jonathan Pollard. I do not justify his actions, but I am disturbed at the unfairness of his sentence when compared with others who have committed offenses comparable to his and some even more serious. His sentence was not appropriate for the offense.

In view of that, I urge that you review his case and consider commuting his sentence to time served, or that he be granted parole when he becomes eligible.

In this very serious time in our country's history, I wish you a successful administration and urge that you remain committed to the democratic principles of social justice which you pledged in your campaign.

With my best wishes and appreciation,

Sincerely yours,

Sylvia Lewis
National President
