Condemning Hateful Killings in South Carolina

Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ stands with the community of Charleston, South Carolina and the congregants of the Emanuel AME Church today as they confront the most horrific of acts – the hateful slaughter of nine in a holy sanctuary. Hate crimes affect both individuals and entire communities. They are meant to isolate and terrorize. We stand, in direct contrast, for an inclusive and pluralistic community – one that cherishes life and recognizes that every person is created in the divine image. This horrible act reminds us of the ugly currents of racism that still run deep in our society. We must address hatred directly and justly. Just last week, our New Jersey legislature unanimously passed a resolution condemning hate crimes committed against faith-based groups and anti-Semitism in New Jersey and around the world. We must clearly and unequivocally demonstrate that there is no place for hatred in our society. May the memories of those lost be for a blessing.

To help the families of the victims of this horrific act, you can make a donation to the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund.

Federation cares for people in need, builds Jewish life, and saves the world, one person at a time, every day.

THE CORRIDOR

  • I spent a fascinating couple of days this week with one of our key partners, the Jewish Agency for Israel. If you’re proud of the work we do helping Jews make Aliyah, strengthening our connection to Israel, and working around the world to deepen Jewish identity, then you should be proud of our partners too. Like our amazing shlichim program, the Aliyah and identity programs help Israel  ̶  but we get back so much more at home.
