Central Synagogue – Beth Emeth is committed to addressing hatred and prejudice whatever the source. We are grounded in transcendent Jewish values, and America’s enduring pledge of freedom, equality, justice and security for all.
2016 was truly unprecedented as we saw an atmosphere of anxiety, fear, distrust and even hatred emerge throughout the United States. Hate crime statistics show an increase at staggering rates. In New York City alone there appears to have been a 30 percent rise in hate crimes during 2016. Preliminary data and a variety of news articles indicate that nationwide statistics will also reflect this startling trend. Accordingly, Central Synagogue – Beth Emeth is mobilizing against those who spew hatred and target and threaten the peace, possessions and safety of all citizens. The purpose of this site is to compile resources and facts from credible sources so that we can all remain vigilant and informed.
“Try to understand men. If you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and almost always leads to love.”
― John Steinbeck
