The events of this past week, beginning in Charlottesville and continuing on through the car ramming in Barcelona, are abhorrent. The Jewish Federation of Somerset, Hunterdon & Warren Counties emphatically believe that hate should have no home in our community or our country. Sadly, there are too many occasions these days to call out hate, anti-Semitism, and bigotry. 
 
We, like many Jewish Federations across the country, are compelled to speak out to denounce blind hate and take a stand to call for solidarity, kindness, and education.


Actions speak louder than words, which is why your Federation works tirelessly to create a world that is not only safe for the Jews, but for all people.
 
We fight this battle every day through our programs and advocacy efforts, including:

• Our statewide Holocaust & Genocide education program which teaches children what happens when we blindly hate the “Other”, but more importantly teaches them how to stand up against bigotry.
• Our Community Relations Committee, which provides free speaking events that bring our community together to address these issues.
• Our partnership with the NJ Interfaith Council, promoting understanding between all of the communities in our state.

 

We are the first line of both defense and offense against ignorance and bigotry. 

 
These efforts help make the Jewish community and all faith communities safer, more inclusive, and more vibrant for everyone. To learn more, contact us at info@jfedshaw.org
 
When we say Never Again, we mean it.
 
Shabbat Shalom to you, your friends and family.
 
The Board and Staff of the Jewish Federation of Somerset, Hunterdon & Warren Counties
