Building Bridges in Response to Hatred

Building Bridges in Response to Hatred

Waves of bomb threats have targeted Jewish Community Centers across the U.S. in recent weeks, and officials nationwide have recorded a spike in anti-Semitic vandalism and other hate crimes.

Your support is vital. As Rabbi Eckstein said, “We have heard from so many of our Christian brothers and sisters expressing their profound dismay at the recent rise of anti-Semitic and hate crimes nationwide, and offering their love and support. Hatred only reinforces our mutual determination and resolution to continue building bridges between Christians, Jews, and other faith communities, each and every day, to counter anti-Jewish bigotry.”

Just recently, vandals damaged some 200 headstones at the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in Universal City, Mo., just outside St. Louis, last week, drawing national attention, while on Saturday a playground and elementary school in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park was defaced with swastikas and other ant-Semitic graffiti. On Sunday, meanwhile, vandals damaged 100 headstones at the Mt. Carmel Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia.
