Join Us For An Interfaith March for Justice and Religious Tolerance

Wednesday, April 5, 12:00–2:40 p.m.

Now more than ever, people of all faiths must stand together in support of justice and tolerance. As we approach Passover and Easter, join JTS in an interfaith march to make a powerful statement affirming the dignity of all people and the essential values of tolerance, racial justice, and welcoming the stranger. All those who support welcoming the stranger and promoting racial justice and religious tolerance are welcome.

Location and Route

The march will begin at JTS (3080 Broadway at 122nd Street) and end at the National Black Theatre (Fifth Avenue between 125th and 126th Streets).
