Stronger Together Solidarity Fair in New Rochelle: 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on February 3
In response to the recent attack on Tree of Life Synagogue and HIAS in Pittsburgh, members of Temple Israel, in New Rochelle, felt a strong desire to engage on the issues of anti-Semitism and other social, racial and economic injustices. That desire evolved into the Stronger Together Solidarity Fair, which will take place at the temple from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on February 3.
According to Howard Horowitz, chair of Temple Israel’s Social Action Committee, the fair “will serve to raise awareness, exchange information and foster coalition building, unity and solidarity against all forms of injustice in today’s climate.” The event is open to the public and includes a light breakfast.
In the temple’s exhibit hall, representatives from more than 15 grassroots, local and national organizations, such as HIAS and The Workmen’s Circle, will share information and answer questions about their work for social justice and human rights. In addition, there will be a 10:30 a.m. panel discussion featuring leaders committed to these issues.
“The panelists will discuss how we are stronger together when we work together,” Horowitz says.
