Planning an immigrant solidarity event for Tisha B’Av 5579 (August 10-11, 2019)? Here are some resources to help! Don’t forget to register your event with us! If you have resources to share, send them to Rabbi Salem Pearce.
A prayer by Rabbi Mónica Gomery designed to be read preceding or following the sounding of the shofar at a collective protest on Tisha B’Av. Our hope is that the use of this resource will unify #ClosetheCamps events across the country.
Commentaries by Rabbis Edward C. Bernstein, Ruhi Sophia Motzkin Rubenstein, Lizz Goldstein, Lev Meirowitz Nelson and Denise Handlarski.
T’ruah’s text study, with a prayer for separated families by Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld and the names of the six children who have died in immigration custody, to be read before Mourner’s Kaddish.
A full guide from the National Council of Jewish Women for handling the logistics of your protest.
