Join the Atlanta Jewish community and allies as we “Shine a Light on Antisemitism” on Wed., Dec. 1 at 6:30 p.m. at The Temple and online as part of the Atlanta Solidarity Community Chanukah as we create a vision of fighting back the hatred underlying antisemitism and racism through the light of shared hope and standing together. This intergenerational, interfaith gathering will feature ADL, the AJC Black/Jewish Coalition, local rabbis, elected officials, musical guests, and a menorah lighting. All participants for in-person attendance need to be registered. The program will be followed by a young adult social hour hosted by the Philos Project.
The limited in-person program (masks required) will also be live-streamed so people can join in by lighting their own menorahs during the program. Presentations by the ADL, the AJC Black/Jewish Coalition, local rabbis, elected officials, musical guests, and interfaith allies from the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, the Episcopal Archdiocese of Atlanta, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church. All participants for in-person attendance need to be registered. The program will be followed by a young adult social hour. Registration and event details can be found here.
