Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

On the Klanwatch

Adopted by the CCAR at the 95th Annual Convention of
the Central Conference of American Rabbis
Grossingers, New York, June 18-21, 1984

Whereas the Central Conference of American Rabbis has traditionally championed the cause of civil rights for all Americans, and

Whereas the Central Conference of American Rabbis has particularly desired the complete equality of Blacks in America,

Be it therefore resolved that we deplore the burning and destruction of the Klanwatch central office (including all files and records) in Montgomery, Alabama, in July 1983.

Be it further resolved that we encourage our colleagues and their constituencies to provide financial support for the rebuilding of this worthwhile organization, which seeks to curb Klan activity and recruiting through litigation, education, and monitoring.
