Thousands of Jews around the United States have shown their solidarity to Muslims and immigrants. Bend the Arc, a Jewish social justice group has written a letter of support with thousand of signatures collected  and posted online.

An Open Letter from American Jews

To the millions of immigrants, Muslims, people of color, LGBT people, women, people with disabilities, and everyone who is threatened by the President-Elect and his administration, we want you to know: we are with you.

We are with you now. And we will be with you every day for the next four years.

American Jews are a multiracial and multiethnic community, and 76% of us voted against Donald Trump. We voted against him because we know all too well the dangers of fascistic regimes that rise to power through stigmatization and scapegoating of vulnerable minority populations. And we felt — in our bodies and in our bones — that Trump was presenting a vision of the country completely at odds with our Jewish and American values.

Now, together, we face a time of profound uncertainty. We all hope that our worst fears will not be realized, but we don’t know what will happen, or what kind of help you will need. Please know that in the event of any attempt by our government to wrongfully abridge your safety, liberty, or dignity, we pledge to stand with you in solidarity, to work alongside you using all of the spiritual, political and intellectual resources we possess.

You are not alone. We are with you.

Signed,

Stosh Cotler, CEO Bend the Arc Jewish Action
Alex Soros, Board Chair Bend the Arc Jewish Action
Rabbi Sharon Brous
