The Federation of Greater New Orleans expresses our sincere condolences to the citizens of the City of Baton Rouge, the Police Department, and the families of the dead and wounded police officers from Sunday’s attack. Our hearts go out to law enforcement, first responders and to all members of the Baton Rouge community. We, as a community, feel deep sadness at this difficult time. It saddens us to again turn on the news and hear of another shooting in our country specifically directed against law enforcement who serves to protect the people. We join the world in condemning violence against the citizens of Baton Rouge and those charged with protecting the community.

 

Perhaps President Obama said it best, "We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies violence against law enforcement. Attacks on police are an attack on all of us, and the rule of law that makes society possible."

 

We join others across America and pray that peace and unity comes to Baton Rouge soon.

  • A Journey to Justice in Ukraine

    An alum of Federation partner JDC’s Metsuda program for training young Jewish leaders in Eastern Europe, Nikita Didenko knows how to act under pressure. When violence erupted in his small hometown in Ukraine, he made the agonizing choice to leave behind everything he knew—including his fiancée—and move to Kiev. Once there, he was taken in by Federation-supported Moishe House where he discovered his calling—big-city police work.
