President’s Message – June 25

Word of the week:


Dear all,

This week I am sharing with you a wonderful article sent to me by Ainsley Henrigues with the CJC Jamaica about The Tulsa Race Massacre and Oklahoma’s Jews. “How local Jews – some with fresh memories of European pogroms – did their small part to help victims of one of the worst acts of racial violence in US history.”

This article previously appeared in “The Librarians,” the National Library of Israel’s official online publication dedicated to Jewish, Israeli and Middle Eastern history, heritage and culture. Please click here to read this amazing story. by Phil Goldfarb.
