Out of respect for the current situation after the grievous killing of George Floyd and the subsequent protests around our city and nation, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York (JCRC-NY) is postponing the Virtual Celebrate Israel Parade until Sunday, June 21st at 1:00 pm (EDT). We stand in partnership with our sisters and brothers in the Black community, and in all communities of color, as we collectively strive to stamp out racism and prejudice in all of its forms from our society. We, in the Jewish community, know all too painfully the end result of unchecked hatred. The theme of this year’s parade is "Todah" or “Thank You” to essential workers who give tirelessly at great risk during the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to celebrating together when we can give them the gratitude they truly deserve.
In lieu of celebrating this weekend, JCRC-NY is convening a virtual conversation with African-American community leaders on racism in America on Sunday, June 7th at 1:00 pm (EDT) as we mourn for George Floyd and the many others who have been victims of racism and hate in America. Details will follow shortly. … See MoreSee Less
