Praying for Israel: A Rally for Peace Sunday

(DENVER) – The Colorado community is invited to stand in solidarity with the Denver Jewish Community at a prayer and rally for peace on Sunday, May 16 at 10:00 a.m.

Hosted by JEWISHColorado and the Rocky Mountain Rabbis and Cantors, the community is invited to join in person outdoors at Temple Emanuel’s Grape Street Lawn (51 Grape Street, Denver, CO 80220) and streamed via Facebook by JEWISHcolorado and Temple Emanuel Denver. Social distancing and masks encouraged.

Our hearts are with our families, friends, and all of Israel, and we extend our condolences to those who must now mourn in the wake of ongoing violence. We stand in solidarity with Israel as it undertakes efforts to defend its citizens against these terror attacks.

Join Rabbis and Cantors from throughout the community as well as Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser and the Jewish Community Relations Council for remarks and healing songs and prayers as Israel faces fighting, violence, and unrest. JEWISHcolorado President and CEO Rabbi Jay Strear said, “As our people experience the worst violence in years, this is a time – the time – that we must stand with the people of Israel.”
