President Obama will address the Reform movement's biennial.

The Union for Reform Judaism said Thursday that Obama would address the Dec. 14-18 policymaking conference at a location in the greater Washington area, and the White House confirmed that the speech would take place.

Rabbi David Saperstein, the director of the Reform movement's Religious Action Center, has advised Obama's White House on a number of issues, particularly those related to the intersection of faith and public policy.

Obama has reached out in recent months to the U.S. Jewish community ahead of the 2012 elections, trying to move past tensions over Israel that arose during his first term.
