Lamentations and Reparations

Join our communities for a healing evening of prayers, conversation, and acts of Teshuvah (reparations) in response to the clarion call for reparations from descendants of the trans- atlantic slave trade. The book of Eicha will be chanted as part of this evening’s program.

Featuring Benjamin Mertz, director of the Joyful Noise Gospel Singers, who will lead singers and non-singers alike in spirituals, civil rights songs, and other music of the African-American diaspora. With spiritual teachers Rabbi Dev Noily, Hazan Shulamit Wise Fairman, Magid Jhos Singer, Julie Batz, Reverend Deborah Lee, and Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb.

This event suitable for children ages10 and up.

Cosponsored by Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity and Kehilla Community Synagogue.

Donations for reparations are welcome.
