The ad celebrated the larger movement as Americas current day Civil Rights Movement and the best chance at equity and justice. Spearheaded by radical-left and pro-BDS groups like Bend the Arc and Jewish Voice for Peace, the ad purported to represent Jewish organizations from across the spectrum speaking in one voice to support the BLM movement. It also implicitly attacked those voicing concern about the movements antisemitism by suggesting they were racists and white supremacists who were pointing fingers, scapegoating, and using antisemitic dogwhistles in order to undermine Black-led movements. The advertisement thus provoked anger and anxiety within the American Jewish community. (See the ad here.)
What is the Controversy Over the Movement?

Among them was the BLM movement co-founder, Patrisse Cullors.
