Jewish Detroit Community Vigil For Pittsburgh
Tomorrow at 6 p.m., Hazon Detroit, The Well, Repair The World: Detroit, Detroit City Moishe House, Detroit Jews for Justice, the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue, NEXTGen Detroit, the JCRC/AJC Detroit and the Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit will host a vigil for the fallen victims of the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.
According to the Facebook event page, this vigil will give the community the chance to “gather together to grieve, sing, cry, pray and show support for the Jewish community of Pittsburgh.
The ADL will join this event to “send a united message that our country will not be a home for hate.”
In an email sent to the Jewish News, the ADL said, “this tragic act of anti-Semitic violence offers a sobering reminder of what feelings of hate can look like in action. Now, more than ever, we must stand together as a community in this moment to denounce anti-Semitism and hate in all of its forms.”
The group will gather at 6:00 p.m. and the vigil will start at 6:15 p.m.
Please bring a candle and leave plenty of time for parking downtown.
