Event description

Description

This spring, JFREJ is focusing on Black power and liberation, and strategies for investing in the future of Black people, very much including Black Jews of Color. We started by Counting the Omer with the Vision For Black Lives platform. Next, we will be holding a Shavuot for Black Lives. And finally, we will come together as a community, in all our multi-racial, multi-ethnic splendor, for our first-ever Juneteenth Seder! More details to come.

Juneteenth is the annual commemoration of the emancipation of Africans and African-Americans from slavery. It was first celebrated on June 19th, 1865 when news of the Emancipation Proclamation finally made its way to Galveston, Texas. Since then, Juneteenth has become a yearly tradition in many Black communities across the United States.

The Juneteenth Seder will be a vibrant community event led by Jews of Color, other members of the JFREJ community, and special guests. With art, music, food, and ritual we will celebrate Black liberation, lift up those who are fighting for freedom today, and wrestle with our shared responsibility to invest in Black community-building and leadership.

The event will be family-friendly. For accessibility questions, email leo@jfrej.org. To volunteer or help plan the event, sign up here.
