The Anti-Defamation League is being sued by an employee who charges that its promotion practices aren't kosher.
Tonietta Moffett says the nonprofit won't make her an assistant director because she's "African-American and not Jewish."
Her Manhattan federal court suit seeks unspecified damages for discrimination "on account of her race, ethnicity and nonmembership in the Jewish ethnicity or faith."
Moffett, of East Harlem, says she was hired in April 2008 as an "administrative" worker in the ADL's National Regional Operations Department. Shortly afterward, she began filling in for the department's recently departed assistant director, court papers say.
But after doing the job for nearly two years, Moffett says, she was denied a promotion on grounds that she didn't have "a deep understanding of Jewish culture."
Neither the ADL nor its lawyers returned requests for comment.
