We are profoundly proud of the T’ruah rabbis and the clergy of all faiths who joined in peaceful prayer there.

Charlottesville — As white supremacists gather in Charlottesville to voice their displeasure at the removal of a statue that served to commemorate the values of the Confederacy and Gen. Robert E. Lee—a man who led hundreds of thousands of soldiers to their deaths to preserve an economy and culture built on enslaving people because of the color of their skin—rabbis will be among the clergy who are descending on the town to send the message that white supremacy will not go unchallenged.

T’ruah condemns the passage of the Israeli government’s recent decision to transfer 450 Bedouin citizens of Israel from their village of Umm Al Hiran to the nearby Bedouin township of Hura on a “temporary” basis. We are appalled that government officials resorted to brazen falsehoods to try and legitimize their decision, claiming that the village residents agreed to this move when they clearly did no such thing. Raed Abu Al-Qian, the chairman of the village local committee, is quoted by two Israeli newspapers as saying that not a single resident has agreed to or was consulted about this arrangement.
