Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans Condemns White Supremacist Violence in Charlottesville

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans is appalled and saddened by the violence in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday, August 12. This display of hate, bigotry, racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism by white supremacists has no place in America. We strongly believe the rhetoric of hate must always be challenged, as it is inconsistent with both the core tenets of Judaism and the democratic principles of our beloved nation. We‎ genuinely hope everyone will join us in condemning the messages and acts of bigotry we witnessed in Charlottesville. 


We are horrified and sickened by the messages spewed at the rally, and by the deaths and injuries sustained—and we send our condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives over the weekend and wish a speedy recovery to the others who were injured.
