Community Gatherings to Affirm our Values after Charlottesville – 8/23 Temple Sinai, Oakland
August 23, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm| Free
With the events of Charlottesville etched into our minds and news of rallies coming to Berkeley, San Francisco, and Mountain View, we want to provide you with an update on how our Jewish community is responding.
We are planning two interfaith gatherings which will give us the opportunity to join together with members of our greater East Bay community to stand against anti-Semitism, racism, and hate.
Wednesday, August 23 at 7:00 pm
2808 Summit Street, Oakland
We join with federal and local officials and the leadership of the San Francisco Jewish Federation to strongly suggest resisting the urge to engage in counter protests that may serve to escalate the situation and could place members of our community in harm’s way.
The safety and security of our community members and institutions are of paramount concern to us all, and we will continue to keep you apprised of further updates. If you have questions, please contact Judith Markowitz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-809-4901.
