Official statement on George Floyd

The Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix joins other communities across the nation in expressing our grief and outrage over the killing of George Floyd. We join all who mourn the loss of Mr. Floyd’s life. May his memory be for a blessing to his family and all those who loved him.

We deplore the deaths of countless others who have lost their lives because of hate, racism and bigotry. We stand in solidarity with our friends in the Black community to fight for equality and the rights of all people to live without fear.

We respect peaceful protest and decry the actions of those who seek to undermine the safety and security of all of us by engaging in violence and wanton destruction.

We express our concern and sadness for the damage suffered by our local community and we stand ready to support our local businesses and residents.

We pray for a more fair, just and peaceful community for all.
