Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage Releases Statement of Solidarity & Announces Tuesday Night Interfaith Program “Rise Up” with Rev. Dr. Otis Moss and Rabbi Jonathan Cohen

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is a museum of diversity and inclusion. Rooted in the Jewish value of respect for all humanity, we stand in solidarity with the black community and raise our voice in unison with the chorus of multi-racial cries demanding action and change.

George Floyd’s death is a tragedy in a long line of inexcusable tragedies. Each human life taken from this earth at the hands of another who was meant to protect and serve deserves their name to be known. We stand with the families of these victims and all victims of hate, and we will continue to tell their stories — stories of injustice, stories of discrimination, stories of resilience and hope — as we fight to end the systemic racism that plagues this country.

As written inside our museum walls, the words of Edmund Burke ring true now, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

We will not be silent. We will keep working to Stop the Hate.

Be part of the conversation: On Tuesday, June 9 at 7 pm, join us for “Rise Up!” a discussion with civil rights activist, spiritual leader, and founding board member of the Maltz Museum, The Reverend Dr. Otis Moss Jr. and The Temple Tifereth Israel’s Rabbi Jonathan Cohen.
