JTA’s Ron Kampeas wrote about Barack Obama’s plans to rejuvenate the black-Jewish alliance, and this weekend the American Jewish Commitee and the New York Archdiocese’s Office of Black Ministry are holding a conference in New Orleans to talk about that alliance. From the AJC press release:
Against a backdrop of a strongly divided America, the conference will consider two key questions — where we are coming from as distinct faith and ethnic communities, and how we can move forward together. The conference aims to educate and train participants to enable them to become change agents through lectures and hands-on workshops.
