Temple Emanuel holds Black Lives Matter vigil

0

Protestors converged on Temple Emanuel on June 9 for a Black Lives Matter vigil. Participants met on the lawn of the Kensington congregation to show their support for the human rights movement.

Bruce Dincin, a member of the synagogue board, said the large lawn allowed congregants a “safe, peaceful and powerful socially distanced vigil” to honor those who have been victimized by racism.


The crowd observed 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silence in memory of George Floyd, an unarmed African American who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer on May 25.
