Statement of the Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties on the Death of George Floyd (June 7, 2020)
We are horrified by the violent death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week. This incident is a heartbreaking reminder of the work that we, as a nation, still have to do in order to realize a just society for all.
The Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties will continue to be part of the effort to stamp out racism, antisemitism and injustice. We are committed to furthering the ideals of Tzedakah (benevolence), Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and K’lal Yisrael (taking responsibility for one another). These tenets are our sacred heritage as a Jewish people and they are at the core of our work as a Jewish Federation.
We support the peaceful protests that have taken place in Lee and Charlotte counties and the right of all Americans to make their voices heard through non - violent demonstration.
Welcome to the Jewish Federation of Lee & Charlotte Counties
You have achieved so much, yet you choose to do more. You can stand alone,
yet your soul yearns to participate-so you make the connection.
