As president of the Jewish Federation and Foundation of NE Florida, representing a consensus of our board of directors, I am voicing our support for the statement issued by the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations last week (see below). The Conference of Presidents is the central coordinating body representing 50 national Jewish organizations including our own umbrella organization, the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), the Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Unions, AIPAC, ADL, Hadassah, Hillel, JCC Association of North America, JNF, JDC, ORT, and the World Zionist Organization and more than thirty others. Their statement is as follows:
“ Congressional leaders must hold their members accountable for their words and deeds. It is unacceptable for Members of Congress to spread baseless hate against the Jewish people. We are outraged by the statements, past and present, of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene. She routinely traffics in unfounded conspiracy theories that are often anti-Semitic in nature. Representative Greene espouses anti-Semitic canards, such as placing blame on "the Rothschilds" for recent wildfires in California and declaring that "Zionist supremacists" are behind supposed nefarious plots….” Anti-Semitism and hateful, false conspiracy theories cannot be tolerated. This is a humanitarian, bipartisan issue and hate must be condemned whenever it occurs and from whomever is its source.
