Jewish institutions and the Palo Alto Friends Meeting invite the broader community to a vigil in prayerful protest of inhumane policies toward immigrants and refugees.
This is part of a national Jewish effort connecting the 9th of Av (Aug 11), the annual day of mourning over Jewish suffering throughout history, with the experience of today’s immigrants. The Jewish vigil will lead directly into a Quaker Public Worship with a Concern for Immigrants and Refugees, in which participants will gather in silence to listen to the Spirit which guides human affairs and inspires both immediate words and future action.
