Gathering #TogetherattheTable in Response to Pittsburgh

This Friday, November 2nd, we’re coming together to mobilize a grassroots movement of Shabbat dinners dedicated to celebrating diversity, equality, and inclusion after this past weekend’s tragedy of violence and anti-Semitism in Pittsburgh.

Quote from the Anti-Defamation League:

“This week we were witness to a horrific anti-Semitic attack in Pittsburgh that left our entire Jewish community heartbroken and in pain. As we work to address the extremism and hate in our communities, it is just as important to create space to come together in community to process, to heal, and to gain strength from each other. This Shabbat we stand with our partners in solidarity with the Pittsburgh Jewish community and all those affected by the recent act of anti-Semitism and hate in our country.”

(This is a continuation of the very widespread Together at the Table campaign launched after the events in Charlottesville in the Fall of 2017. For more information on that campaign, click here.)

Hundreds of young adults are gathering #TogetherattheTable in response to last weekend’s violence in Pittsburgh. We’ve partnered on resources with ADL for #SolidarityShabbat dinners.

We invite you to continue to join us by gathering people in your communities and networks for a Together at the Table dinner to engage in constructive dialogue with a plurality of perspectives, to address deep, painful divides in our communities, and to consider the role we can play in strengthening civil discourse and society.
