Conference of Presidents: "U.S. Jewry's Sense of Security Has Been Penetrated"

(Jerusalem Post) Jeremy Sharon - American Jews' feeling of personal safety has been seriously harmed by the recent spate of severe, violent anti-Semitic crimes in the country, Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, told the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday. He added that the Tree of Life massacre in Pittsburgh in 2018 was "the end of the age of innocence" for American Jewry. "People feel insecure....Their sense of security has been penetrated." Conference of Presidents CEO William Daroff noted, "In the past, government was a mechanism for enslaving and killing Jews. Today, government at all levels in the U.S. is with the Jewish community, marching with us, and speaking out against anti-Semitism." Daroff also discussed the U.S. peace plan, saying, "It is a starting point, but the key is the Palestinians coming to the table. The ball is in their court. They're losing support in the Arab world and they have to come to terms with reality."
