Congress has hundreds of caucuses, collections of politicians with common interests in everything under the sun –- the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, the Medicare for All Caucus, the Chicken Caucus. On Monday, a new, bipartisan caucus was announced, one that hopes to rebuild a historic alliance that has lately seen some tensions: the Congressional Caucus on Black-Jewish Relations.
Three black and two Jewish members of the US House of Representatives from both parties launched a black-Jewish caucus. “The African-American and Jewish communities have a history of standing together for the promotion of social justice and civil rights,” Rep.
