In light of a recent article, we are writing to allay any potential misconceptions about Rev. Liddy Barlow (“Presbyterian seminary speaker spurs Federation to cut ties,” May 25).
Rev. Barlow is a wonderful ally to the Jewish community as well as a personal friend. She is a strong advocate for the right of self-determination for the Jewish people and for all peoples. We look forward to continuing to work with her to make Southwestern Pennsylvania a better place.
