Juneteenth Shabbat Celebration

Friday June 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Hybrid – Temple

Juneteenth Celebration, June 11 & 19

Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) in red blazer in front of US flagJuneteenth has long been celebrated by African Americans in the U.S., recognizing June 19, 1865, when many enslaved people in Texas learned they had been freed. Although President Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation two years earlier, it could not be enforced in many places until after the end of the Civil War in April 1865. Two months after Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered, Union Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger and his troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.

Washington Hebrew and our Jews of Color group will recognize the holiday with a weekend full of celebration, including:

  • A special Shabbat service (also available via livestream), including an address from Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. (Friday, June 17)
  • Other special guests for the service include:
  • Shabbat dinner following the service (RSVP below)
  • A film screening of Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America (Sunday, June 19, 10:30 am, Edlavitch DCJCC).

Following the service, everyone is invited to join our Shabbat dinner.

Thanks to our co-sponsors of this weekend of events
