Jewish Council on Urban AffairsBlack Jews for Black Lives: Shabbat Gathering with Kol Or
June 6 @ 10:15 AM - 12:00 PM
Join us this Saturday for a “Black Jews for Black Lives Shabbat Gathering” led by JCUA’s Kol Or caucus for Jews of Color, taking place at the Field House in Humboldt Park at 10:15 a.m. before the Chicago March of Justice for George Floyd. There will be song, prayer, and reflection. Black Jews need your allyship and support as we seek justice for George Floyd and dismantle white supremacy. We will then join the march together. If your Shabbat practice allows, we’re calling on you to join us.
The JCUA program will be from 10:30-11:00 at the Humboldt Park Field House, 1400 N. Humboldt Drive, which is a block south of North Avenue. We’ll then walk across the street to the rally at the Boat House at 11:00. The rally will be from 11:00-12:00 and then the march will be from 12:00-2:00.
At this time we will have a contingent but we are not part of organizing the larger event. Recommendations: wear your mask, bring water. Leave your vehicle outside the perimeter of the park because we don’t know if the park will be closed off following the event.
