Terrorism Victim Aid

Society for Humanistic Judaism Supports Aid to Victims of Terrorism

 

Whereas the fate of the Jewish people has been inextricably bound to issues of immigration and asylum for millennia, and

 

Whereas Humanistic Jews affirm the values of human dignity, equality and compassion, and

 

Whereas Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA, formerly UJC) has earmarked philanthropic funds to aid all Israeli citizens harmed by terrorism, and

 

Whereas certain groups have criticized the JFNA for including Arab citizens as potential recipients of such dollars,

 

Therefore it is resolved that the Society for Humanistic Judaism declares its full support for JFNA’s policy of nondiscriminatory allocation of funds to the victims of terrorism.
