Peaceful Community Vigil at Keneseth Israel

June 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel (KI) invites our members and community to join together in a peaceful vigil.
This SUNDAY, June 7th, 4:00 PM
PLEASE NOTE THIS CHANGE OF DATE DUE TO WEATHER.
Join us in solidarity with the Abington Friends Meeting and other faith-based organizations holding peaceful protests and vigils in memory of George Floyd and all other people of color who have been killed simply because of the color of their skin.
Please meet up with Cantor Levy and Andrew Altmann in front of our “Love Your Neighbor As Yourself” billboard at the corner of Old York Road and Township Line Road at 4 p.m. this Friday, June 5th. We will then spread out along the Old York Road sidewalk in front of the KI “Love your Neighbor As Yourself” pillars.
Sounding the shofar is Jeff Miller, joined by violinist Phil Kates, and Ross M. Levy on guitar.
We will have a moment of prayer, 9 minutes of silence, and end with a Mi Sheberach prayer for healing. Please join us either on Facebook Live – https://www.facebook.com/ReformCongregationKenesethIsrael/ from your homes, or with masks and socially distanced in front of our building.
At the event, we will also be collecting canned goods and non-perishable items for distribution to people with food insecurity.
Please share this with your friends. https://www.kenesethisrael.org/event/peaceful-community-vigil
