Bend the Arc, National Council of Jewish Women of Cleveland, The Religious Action Center and T’ruah will sponsor a #closethecamps vigil at 4 p.m Aug. 11 at Suburban Temple-Kol Ami, 22401 Chagrin Blvd. in Beachwood.
The vigil will take place during Tisha b’Av, the Jewish holiday of mourning.
Confirmed speakers are Dr. Arthur Lavin and Rabbi Allison Vann of Suburban Temple.
“The vigil is purposefully scheduled on this particular holiday,” said Elaine Geller, president of NCJW Cleveland. “We cannot ignore the cries of those whose tragedy is right before us. We are demanding that the U.S. government close the detention camps and join in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors and communities.”
