The Jewish Federations of North America is appalled and saddened by the recent violence in Charlottesville, VA. This display of hate, bigotry, racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism by white supremacists has no place in America. We are horrified and sickened by the messages spewed at the rally, and by the deaths and injuries sustained


We send our condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives over the past two days and wish a speedy recovery to others who have been injured.
