The Anti-Israel Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee


American Jews have to been too complacent and apathetic towards the judenrat (above)  and kapo-style “leadership” that has co-opted America’s largest Jewish organizations. American Jews catastrophically failed the diaspora during World War II. We have much to make up for. It is unfathomable that we should be going down the same path in much the same way again.

On April 21, 2015, Tennessee became the first state to pass a resolution formally condemning Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel and the increasing incidence of anti-Semitism; it was signed by the Governor several days later. This resolution was initiated by Laurie Cardozo-Moore, founder of a Christian Zionist organization, Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, together with Mark Freedman, Executive Director of the (JFEDNMT). He joined Laurie in speaking to legislators and testifying to a Tennessee Senate committee in support of the resolution.

The Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee had advocated for a resolution that condemns BDS – supposedly in line with their 2011 actions, where they adopted a policy restricting financial support for organizations involved in promoting BDS.  The policy, which also applies to grants from the Federations Foundation reads in part:
“The JFEDNMT  does not fund organizations that through their mission, activities or partnerships:

…   3. advocate for, or endorse, undermining the legitimacy of Israel as a secure independent, democratic Jewish state, including through  participation in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, in whole or in part.

These principles also apply to grants from the JFEDNMTs Foundation.”

Yet, when it comes to actions, this same Federation’s Foundation granted money this year to the New Israel Fund complete with an asterisk that frees up NIFs funds to support  organizations that promote BDS.

It appears this is not the first year they sent money to NIF. Harriet Schiftan should be contacted to answer why does the Federation fund such heinous programs? Her husband, Nashville Rabbi Mark Schiftan (who has been described as the most dangerous Rabbi in America) took his congregation to a local mosque to commemorate Yom Kippur – the holiest Jewish day of the year.

So, standing with the boycott loving Alisa Doctoroff of the UJA-Federation of New York is the Yom Kippur imam loving Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee. Kapos – all of them.
