A message from NJPAC's Community Engagement Team


WHEN: Mon, Mar 4. Film screening @ 6PM, Panel conversation @ 7 – 8:30PM

WHERE: Chase Room, NJPAC, 1 Center Street, Newark, NJ

The murder of 11 worshippers in the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018 was the largest antisemitic attack in U.S. history. In the aftermath, interfaith groups rallied for their Jewish neighbors in meaningful ways — including attending memorials, raising money for funerals and spearheading advocacy campaigns to combat gun violence.

With a national uptick in hate crimes against religious, racial and LGBTQ+ groups, among others, it’s time to ignite the power of interfaith cooperation to effect change.

Join us for an abridged screening of A Tree of Life: The Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting followed by a panel conversation with national and local faith leaders on how to build unity to confront all forms of hate.

This program is produced by NJPAC’s Black and Jewish Understanding Project and Standing in Solidarity.

Please note that Rev. Davie, through his work with the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, has been called to Saudi Arabia and is no longer able to participate.

We are happy that Dr. David Jefferson, Jr. will be joining Ambassador Suzan Johnson Cook, Imam Mohamed Magid and Rabbi Matthew Gewirtz on the panel. Learn more about our panelists here.
