Greater New Orleans Jewish Community Open Letter to the Local African-American Community

To Our African-American Brothers and Sisters in Greater New Orleans,

Our shared history holds within it moments of powerful partnership between our communities, and it also holds moments of estrangement and points of pain. In full awareness of that complicated history, and for those members of our community whose overlapping identities – Black and Jewish – connect us to each other, we write this letter to express our solidarity at this difficult time.
