As you may have heard in the news or seen on social media, antisemitic graffiti was found on the electronic “welcome” sign at Bethesda’s Walt Whitman High School this past weekend.

In response, the greater community is coming together for a nightly rally and hanukkiyah lighting at the very sign that was defaced. Cantor Bortnick and many of our WHC families will be there. We invite you to join them as together we raise our voices in song, and proudly affirm our Jewish pride.

December 18 – December 25
8:00 pm
Walt Whitman High School
7100 Whittier Boulevard, Bethesda, MD 20817

If you or your children are in need of support following yesterday’s incident, please let us know so we can connect you with our clergy. If you are looking for ways to respond to antisemitic incidents, please visit our Fighting Antisemitsm page.
