WATCH: Orthodox Jewish Yeshiva Honors African-American Head of Security


There was a surprise honoree at the Yeshiva Darchei Torah dinner this week – their head of security, Everett Fortune, who has been with the yeshiva for over 20 years (hat tip: Sam).

Listen to the claps and look at the standing ovation, how Everett is dressed like his Jewish friends, the kisses from the Rabbis…

With tensions high between our communities in the wake of all of those recent antisemitic attacks perpetrated by African-Americans, this was just the tonic we needed.

Now excuse me while I clean the dust out of my eyes.
