Greater Knoxville Jewish Community Condemns Anti-Semitic Acts

The Greater Knoxville Jewish Community resolutely condemns the words and symbols of anti-Semitism which have recently appeared on the University of Tennessee campus and are disheartened that this could happen here in Knoxville.  We know this message of hate does not reflect the community as a whole which has stood in solidarity with the Jewish community during this challenging time.  Jewish communities across the United States are being targeted by anti-Semites at an unprecedented rate.  We stand resolved to continue in opposition to anti-Semitism with strength and determination in collaboration with our allies. 


We call upon the University of Tennessee, the City of Knoxville, Knox County, and the entire Knoxville community to join us in initiating a campaign against hate. #KnoxvilleAgainstHate


Participating organizations: Knoxville Jewish Alliance, Heska Amuna Synagogue, Temple Beth El, Jewish Congregation of Oak Ridge, Knoxville Jewish Day School, Chabad of Knoxville, and Knoxville Hadassah.

  • Temple Beth El Sisterhood Officers in 1945-1946
