Statement of Support for Temple Israel
On Monday night, July 29, at approximately 9 pm, white supremacists plastered neo-Nazi posters on and around Temple Israel on Wildwood Avenue. Choosing not to give publicity to such a vile cause, we’ve instead opted to express our support for Temple Israel and our Jewish friends here in Muscogee County.
The Muscogee County Democratic Committee stands together with the Columbus community in support of our Jewish brothers and sisters, and with Temple Israel. Ours is a loving and inclusive city and we will allow NO space for anti-Semites, Nazis nor white supremacists.
“Community is society with a human face – the place where we know we’re not alone”Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
Temple Israel is not alone in Columbus, Georgia. Please count on the Muscogee County Democrats as friends and allies against hatred and ignorance.
