Jewish Hero in South Carolina

Filed under:

There’s an amazing column in the National Review Online about a man I’m proud to learn of: retiring chief of the Charleston, South Carolina police department, Reuben Greenberg. The article is subtitled “How a black, Jewish Texan cleaned up an old Confederate city.” It discusses the changes Greenberg instituted to turn around crime rates in the city, and it also points to how Jews “come in all different colors from all over the world.” A child of intermarriage, Reuben Greenberg is clearly a strongly identified Jew and sounds like a remarkable person in general.

This photo is by renowned photographer Bill Aron and is part of an interesting traveling exhibition called “…A Portion of the People: Three Hundred Years of Southern Jewish Life” from the Jewish Heritage Collection of the College of Charleston’s library.
