Several Jewish organizations wrote to the Senate Judiciary Committee urging them to oppose Adeel Abdullah Mangi’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Mangi donated thousands of dollars to the Rutgers’ Center for Security, Race and Rights and was personally invited to serve on the Center’s board of advisors by the Center’s director, who has consistently promoted anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Coalition for Jewish Values:
“The left-wing Jewish organizations lining up to back Mr. Mangi’s nomination do not represent the consensus of American Jewry, much less its rabbinic leadership. Mr. Mangi’s alliance with the Center raises genuine concerns about his judgment and his commitment to American principles. Those concerns have nothing to do with his religious background or faith.”
“We believe these concerns to be sufficiently grave that we urge the committee to await a more suitable candidate, untainted by associations with antisemitic organizations, especially at a time when antisemitic hatred is openly displayed in a fashion which Americans have not seen since the Nazi era.”
