As we mourn for George Floyd and the many other victims of racism and
hate in America, JCRC-NY, in solidarity with our African-American
sisters and brothers and all communities of color, has decided to
postpone the annual Celebrate Israel Parade.
Recognizing and memorializing the historic moment
in which we are living, JCRC-NY will convene a virtual
Space of Healing and Listening
on Sunday, June 7th at 1:00 pm (EDT).
This gathering will provide an opportunity for Jews and non-Jews
alike to hear messages from prominent African-American community
leaders in New York, including:
Jennifer Jones Austin, CEO, Federation of Protestant Welfare
Tamara Fish, Co-Founder, Khazbar, Former President, Jewish
