(JNS) A two-day cultural event in New York this week brought together members of the Jewish and Black communities in an effort to take a stand against antisemitism and racism in the United States, the organizers said on Monday.

The “Fighting Anti-Semitism and Racism Together” conference, held on Oct. 24-25, was a joint endeavor initiative of the Jazz Leadership Project, the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement and the American Sephardi Federation.

At the event, organizers highlighted the long tradition of cooperation between the two communities, pointing to the Jews’ overwhelming support for Martin Luther King Jr.’s struggle for equality and cooperation. Participants agreed that this long-standing alliance must never waver, particularly in the current climate in which tensions are being fueled by “emerging ideologies.”

The also warned of the dangers of the spike in anti-Israel rhetoric, which is classified as antisemitic language by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s “working definition” of antisemitism.
