In the News: U.S. Synagogues Invite Grieving Jews to Sit Shiva Together After Trump Victory

Proud to have been part of such a moving and important gesture of unity. Thank you to our partners, Auburn Seminary, Judson Memorial Church, Middle Collegiate Church, and Central Synagogue, and all the other faith communities and people that gathered to stand and sing with soul for love, freedom, and justice.

“Some of the gatherings were interfaith. New York City’s Lab/Shul, led by Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie, participated in a “public pray-in” with Protestant ministers and others in Manhattan’s Washington Square Park Wednesday afternoon. The event, which was organized by Auburn Theological Seminary, “was super powerful,” said Lau-Lavie. Lab/Shul, like other congregations, is also planning meetings on Shabbat at which members can process their feelings.”
