Black-Jewish Relations

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. taught that people should judge, and be judged, “based on the content of their character, not the color of their skin”.
We need to refocus on these principles in general, but particularly around relationships between African-Americans and Jews. Our focus is on the twin evils of racism and anti-Semitism. We passionately resist all forms of racism, and confront anti-Semitism from all its sources, which are three: the far right, the far left, and jihadism. We work with youth, college age, young professionals, and adult communities on programs that involve reading, study, dialogue, travel, and social programming.
