Your Federation donations at work?

If you gave money to the New York Jewish Federation, you helped to support an organization that is trying to take down this man.

Let's go to the videotape.

Jewish Funds for Justice (JFSJ), the George Soros-funded activist group that recently made headlines for its high-profile war against Fox News host Glenn Beck, has received over $1 million from the UJA-Federation of New York since 2008.

Over the past three years at least seven Federation grants have been awarded to the JFSJ, ranging from $75,000 to $219,000. Some of that money has gone toward JFSJ’s Hurricane Katrina disaster relief efforts. But, according to Federation spokesperson Samantha Kessler, the bulk of the funding has gone toward the group’s “Congregational-based Community Organizing” programs.

“Congressional-based Community Organizing” is pretty much exactly what it sounds like – Chicago-style community organizing, except in the synagogue. According to the Federation website, the JFSJ program was designed to “develop strong and effective social-justice networks in up to eight Manhattan synagogues.”

In an email, Kessler explained that the goal was to “strengthen synagogues by building meaningful relationships among their members, attracting additional Jews and Jewish families to congregational life, and developing more robust leadership for synagogues.” The Federation felt that the JFSJ “had a proven model for congregation-based community organizing that provided a unique way to accomplish this.”

The JFSJ’s community organizing expertise may explain how it was able to quickly coordinate 400 rabbis to sign an anti-Glenn Beck letter published in the Wall Street Journal in January. The letter was criticized by COMMENTARY as well as prominent members of the Jewish community, who called it a partisan attack.
Do you feel good about $1 million of your charitable donations going to attack the man who said this?

Let's go to the videotape.

If my money were going to fund an organization that's trying to take that man down, I'd feel downright rotten about it. But fortunately, I don't donate to the New York Jewish Federation. Do you?

Beck is a true patriot. His work is honorable. He speaks loudly and clearly for Israel. Mainstream Jewish organizations should be ashamed to be associated with JFSJ - or anything with Soros' filthy hoof prints. Why on earth would UJA-Fed contribute hard-won donations to this organization? Could it be that UJA-Fed is anti-Israel?

I see all of that socialist "community organizing" and "social justice" garbage. and get suspicious. American Jews need to wake up fast. Kapo Soros is deeply involved with UN policies, like the recently exposed R2P (Responsibility to Protect) policy, which may soon be used as a pretext to attack Israel (G-d forbid).
