The Greensboro Jewish Federation joins Jewish and other communities across the nation in expressing our grief and outrage over the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and all of those lives that have been prematurely taken due to systemic racism. We mourn the deaths of countless others who have lost their lives because of hate, racism and bigotry.
We stand in solidarity with our friends in the African-American community, and have reached out to past participants of Interfaith Study Missions to Israel and participants on this year’s Civil Rights Journey sponsored by the Greensboro Jewish Federation, Mt. Zion Baptist Church and the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro.
Our destiny is bound to one another. We stand in solidarity with our friends in the African-American community and in all communities of color, united as an ally in the fight for equality and the right of all people, regardless of the color of their skin, to live without fear.
