JFNA and GJF statement regarding events in Charlottesville
Published August 14, 2017

The Greensboro Jewish Federation joins Jewish Federations of North America in sending condolences to the families of those who lost their lives during the violence in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday, August 12. We wish a speedy recovery to others who have been injured.

We are appalled and saddened by the violence. This display of hate, bigotry, racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism by white supremacists has no place in America. We are horrified and sickened by the messages spewed at the rally, and by the deaths and injuries sustained. 

May God comfort the families among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. 


Marilyn Forman Chandler               Marc Isaacson
Executive Director                           President
