Jewish Protest

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass



Heather Heyer was an American woman who stood for the good of the land.  In the face of angry white men, she stood her ground and another organization is recognizing her sacrifice by cancelling a traditional meeting with an American president. 

Four groups of rabbis said they would not make the annual call to mark the Jewish holidays due to the sitting president’s statements in the wake of Ms. Heyers’ tragic killing was, "so lacking in moral leadership and empathy,” that the meeting would not take place. 

Trump was condemned for his pro-racist support at the time of the tragedy. 

Neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, the Concerned Citizen Council and many other far right wingers took part in a torch-lit rally shouting racist and anti-Semitic slogans in the town in which the author of “Thirty-years a Slave” Louis Hughes was born in 1832.

Heyer was part of an anti-racist group who confronted the hooded racists and a car driven by a man who was mentally unstable ploughed through the crowd hitting and injuring many people, but killing Ms. Heyer, a 32-year-old woman who stood for good. 

In a written statement the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Rabbinical Assembly, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism shot down the president for saying the anti-racist where to share in the blame for violence set in motion by the coalition including skin-heads.  Saying, "The President's words have given succor to those who advocate anti-Semitism, racism, and xenophobia."  It continues, "Responsibility for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, including the death of Heather Heyer, does not lie with many sides but with one side: the Nazis, alt-right and white supremacists who brought their hate to a peaceful community. They must be roundly condemned at all levels."

As in every group two of the organizations are continuing to seek favor from Mr. Trump and they include, the Rabbinical Council of America and the organization of Orthodox rabbis who did not sign the statement.  First daughter Ivanka Trump is a member of the Orthodox Jew community.

The telephonic meeting has become an annual event in recent years kicking off the holiday season.  The talk mostly steers clear of political talk and focuses on the importance of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
