Immigration & Detention Solidarity on Tisha B’av: From Despair to Consolation

12:00 – 2:00 p.m.

View flyer

From Despair to Consolation will take place at the County Government Building at 70 W. Hedding St, in the James P. McEntee Sr. Plaza.
Tisha B’Av (the 9th day of Hebrew month Av) is the saddest day of the Jewish calendar, marking tragedies that have befallen the community. These tragedies led to exile and oppressive immigrant experiences. This year, Jewish communities across the country are marking this observance in solidarity with the modern-day tragedy befalling asylum seekers denied refuge and kept in unthinkable conditions. We cry out with the families separated and the children locked in cages.
Join us as we share stories, sing lamentations, stand with those impacted, and call for a new vision of healing and justice. All faiths/backgrounds welcome.
You are welcome to bring signs with message that are appropriate to your culture’s expressions of mourning or lament current immigration policy and actions.
