Conservative Movement Statement on Violent Demonstrations in
Charlottesville, VA

Posted on:
Sunday August 13, 2017


In the aftermath of violent demonstrations by white supremacists and
their sympathizers in Charlottesville, Virginia, resulting in 3 deaths
and many injuries, the Rabbinical Assembly and the United Synagogue of
Conservative Judaism issued the following statement:

The Rabbinical Assembly and United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism are
shocked and horrified by the violent demonstrations of white
supremacists, neo-Nazis and their sympathizers in Charlottesville,
Virginia this past Saturday which resulted directly in the deaths of one
civilian and two state police officers and in many other serious
injuries. We applaud the swift and effective actions of Mayor Mike
Signer of Charlottesville and Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, as well
as their appropriate condemnations of the bigotry, antisemitism and
hatred that inspired the rally itself. Many leaders have taken the
indispensable step of naming the dangerous philosophies and movements
that united these demonstrators. These events have been rightly labeled
as incidents of domestic terror by both Democrats and Republicans.

We call upon United States officials including President Donald Trump
and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to condemn neo-Nazi, white
supremacist and alt-right movements by name. The repeated failure to do
so by top U.S. officials has fueled their growth and poses an imminent
threat to all Americans as Saturday's violent rallies showed. History
has demonstrated that where a country's leaders fail to condemn these
philosophies, violence and hatred can quickly and exponentially consume
the fabric of civil society. Our leaders must act now. Let us continue
to pray for and to work for the day when all shall "sit under his/her
vine and fig tree and none shall make them afraid."

Rabbi Philip Scheim, President, The Rabbinical Assembly
Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, CEO, The Rabbinical Assembly
Margo Gold, President, USCJ
Rabbi Steven Wernick, CEO, USCJ

Shabbat Shalom
