African American Jews whose ancestors were enslaved, torn from their mothers’ arms and sold, know the trauma of violent family separation and dehumanization.

Jews descended from holocaust survivors know the trauma of families torn apart by white nationalist and antisemitic regimes.

Mizrahi Jews know the painful legacy of babies kidnapped by the state, never to be seen again, never to receive recognition or accountability of who and what was stolen from them.

Jews recently immigrated to the US and immigrating here now, alone and waiting for their families to follow, know the pain of loved ones separated by borders, walls, and fences.

Jews feel the pain of family separation in our bones. It is part of our histories.

We refuse to allow it to be part of anyone’s future.

As Jews we must take action to #EndFamilySeparation.

Start by supporting organizations that have been doing this work for decades, from local groups like @MaketheRoadNY to groups working on the southern border like @RAICESTEXAS, @PuenteAZ, and more.

We will keep our community updated about further opportunities to take action and additional organizations to support and get involved with.
