- Statements on the Death of George Floyd
The Jewish Federations of North America is outraged and sickened by the violence of the Minneapolis police officers that led to the death of George Floyd. We share in the heartbreak, pain and sorrow provoked by his loss and the loss of many others through sordid acts of hate and bigotry. May their memory be for a blessing.

We pledge to our brothers and sisters in the black community – and all communities of color – to work together to reverse the systemic racism embedded within our country’s institutions and society in general. “Our work won’t be easy,” revered civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis reminded us this week, “nothing worth having ever is.”

In the strongest terms, we also condemn those who are taking advantage of the anguish over George Floyd’s death by hijacking what would be peaceful rallies across the country for their own violent and destructive agenda. These acts threaten our Jewish communities as well as our democracy as a whole. We commit to partnering with community leaders to ensure the safety of all who are at risk.

Together, we can and must be stronger than hate. We will stand and fight for a world free of racism and bigotry in all of its forms.

Jewish Federations across North America have voiced their sorrow for the death of George Floyd. View their statements below.

- New Haven Board of Rabbis & Cantors: A Statement about George Floyd
As rabbis and cantors of the Greater New Haven Jewish community, we cannot be silent at a time of communal crisis. We add our voices to those avowing the principles of our democracy and mourning the senseless murder of George Floyd. We stand in solidarity with our Black neighbors, including Jews of Color, knowing many live each day with the incessant reminder that racism is still a virulent disease in our society. As we sadly add Mr. Floyd’s name to the ever-growing list of senselessly lost black lives which now includes Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many other people of color, we pledge to work together to find ways to bring an end to this calamity by safeguarding the rights of all and, through education, removing the stains of bigotry and hatred.

We condemn those employing ugly rhetoric to marginalize and further divide our nation. We link our arms with those who peacefully demonstrate, voicing a message of hope through the democratic principles of free speech, communal gathering, and the spirit of open dialogue.

We strongly stand in opposition to those who have used this time of mourning and loss to sow chaos through looting, violence, and destruction of property.

The Representative Council of Black Associations (CRAN) benefited from the wave of "Obamania" to be heard. One delegation was received Monday November 10 in the morning at the Elysee by Cédric Goubet, the chief of staff Nicolas Sarkozy.

Patrick Lozes, president of the CRAN, believed to have been partly heard, including the possible approval of ethnic statistics. A tool that he considers necessary to assess discrimination. The President of CRAN states that "the statistics of diversity are just a photograph of France."

He also believes having received an encouraging response on "affirmative action", an idea that he advocates since the creation of CRAN in 2005 but that differs from "positive discrimination".
