16th Street Vigil Against Racism
September 17 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Friday, repeating until November 5, 2021
Black Lives Matter to God and to Us
Since June of 2020, Fabrangen members have participated weekly in the 16th Street Vigil Against Racism. Originally organized by All Souls Church Unitarian and Christ Lutheran Church for the month of June, several of our neighborhood congregations have continued this public protest to support of Black Lives Matter.
Join Fabrangen and Tifereth Israel every Friday from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. in front of the Washington Ethical Society, 7750 16th St. NW, Washington DC 20012.
Our members take a knee and/or blow the shofar for the last 15 minutes of the vigil.
I have found participating in this vigil to be meaningful on several different levels. It feels good to be making a statement that we are committed to fighting against racism and police abuse during this time. In addition, it is nice to see fellow Fabrangeners, even from six feet away. Finally, I love having the opportunity to be physically close to WES. Being outside the building where we normally hold services makes me feel more connected to Fabrangen.
I hope to see many of you there.
