Multifaith Prayerful Vigil for Immigration | Congregation Beth Am

Multifaith Prayerful Vigil for Immigration

Sponsored by T’ruah: Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, in partnership with Bend the Arc South Bay, Multifaith Voices for Peace & Justice, the Friends Meeting of Palo Alto (Quaker), and many other local Jewish communities
Jewish institutions of Palo Alto invite the broader community to a vigil in prayerful protest of inhumane policies toward immigrants in our country.  This is part of a national effort that connects the 9th of Av (August 11th), the annual day of mourning over displacement, discrimination and murder of Jews through their history, with the experience of today’s immigrants.  The Jewish vigil will lead directly into a Quaker Public Worship with a Concern for Immigrants and Refugees, in which participants will gather in silence to listen to the Spirit which guides human affairs and inspires both immediate words and future action.
 
All community members are warmly welcomed!
