Negroes and Jews

By Albert Vorspan

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1966

The author broadly outlines matters of commonality and agreement between Blacks and Jews in America, along with matters of contention. Among the commonalities are civil rights alliances; similar voting patterns; shared religious imagery and motivation; and an increasing presence of Black Jews. Among the topics of dissonance are mutual lack of knowledge of the other; disparate socioeconomic status; different cultural attitudes toward conflict; Jewish flight from urban centers; and feelings toward more radical social changes beyond basic civil rights.
