Kerry, along with the Joint Chiefs chairman and defense secretary, went in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to make the case to hit Syria for its use of chemical weapons.
The Jewish High Holidays were approaching this week with the debate on a strike on Syria in high gear, and some communities have been left worried.
U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was set beginning Tuesday to preside over a debate on the authorization of military force in Syria.
