Black-faced apparent Purim effigy in Rockland County draws condemnation

New York leaders of the Jewish community of New York’s Rockland County condemned the hanging of a black-faced doll with dreadlocks outside a local home apparently in celebration of Purim.

The effigy, which according to a News12 Hudson Valley report Thursday evening was spotted outside a Spring Valley house, angered many African-Americans and others in the area for its reminder of the lynchings — extrajudicial hangings, often by a mob of whites — that have historically terrorized black men.

Barry Kanarek, the director of the Jewish Federation of Rockland, told News 12 Thursday that the effigy was a means of celebrating “the defeating the evil Haman who wanted to kill all the Jews.”
