Felder Staffers Combat Prejudice with Understanding

Operation Understanding’s mission is to build a generation of African American and Jewish community leaders who promote respect, understanding and cooperation while working to eradicate racism, anti-Semitism, and all forms of discrimination.

So when an ensemble of college-age, young adults hailing from Washington, DC, decided to visit Boro Park, Senator Simcha Felder’s staffers Judah Wohlgelernter and Herzka Grunfeld – pictured above with the students – gave them the grand tour along with a greater understanding of what Boro Park is all about.

“Operation Understanding is doing important work and I’m happy that they include Boro Park each year in their quest for knowledge of diversity,” says Senator Felder. “This is a delightful group of open-minded young people eager to learn and we explained the unique identity of the Boro Park neighborhood, how Orthodox businesses work, and how the community works with government toward everyone’s mutual benefit.”
