Julia Salazar Forced By Furor To Clarify Her Jewish Background

(JTA) ‘ New York State Senate candidate Julia Salazar is pushing back against an article on a Jewish website describing discrepancies in her Jewish and family biography.

Salazar, 27, a democratic socialist running for a seat in Brooklyn’s 18th district, has been profiled in various Jewish and general media which note that she is Jewish and Colombian American.

An article that appeared Thursday in Tablet, an online Jewish magazine, said Salazar has been inconsistent in describing her place of birth and Jewish background, and that her Jewish and ‘immigrant’ identity is ‘largely self-created.’
