African-Americans and Jews have more in common than many people suppose. As we approach Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 16, 2006, the Jews for Jesus website has personal stories, book reviews, and essays—for links to them all go here. Look under “of interest” on the left side of the page.

Also, regarding Dr. Martin Luther King, “What is less known about this great leader is his contributions to the Jewish community. While he devoted himself to the interests of the African-American community, he was a great friend to Israel and the Jewish people. He was very active in the battle against anti-Semitism and a vocal advocate for the release of Soviet Jewry.” For more go here.
