Leading New York City Jewish Historical Center Nixes Events Co-Sponsored by Anti-Zionist Group
by Ben Cohen

The New York City-based American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) has announced the cancellation of two upcoming events that were to have been staged in partnership with “Jewish Voice for Peace” — an extreme anti-Zionist group with no formal affiliation to the US Jewish community whose campaigns are generously supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
 In a statement issued on Monday, Rachel Lithgow — the executive director of the AJHS — said the society was pulling the plug on “the Balfour Program scheduled for October 26th and the dramatic reading of ‘Rubble, Rubble,’ scheduled for December 14th.”
“While the programs themselves may have merit, they do not align with the mission of the AJHS,” Lithgow went on to say.
