Interfaith Vigil for LGBT Families of Victims in Orlando

An Interfaith Vigil For LGBT Families in Orlando, Saturday morning, June 18, at 10:30 AM

The Havurah Synagogue is hosting an interfaith vigil for the families of the victims of the mass murder in Orlando. The program will be held at the Havurah at 185 North Mountain Avenue, Saturday morning at 10:30 AM. The program will include a welcome by Gina DuQuenne, President of SOPride, as well as inspirational teachings, prayers, silent meditation, and songs.

The presenters are Shirley Patton, Rev. Norma Nakai Burton, Father Tom Buechele, Bruce Borgerson, Rev. Nan L. White, and Rev. Ruth Kirby. Music by Rabbi David Zaslow, Bryce Ennis, and Alice Di Micele.

Rabbi David Zaslows says, “At a time like this we can comfort each other with music and prayer, but by coming together we are telling those who commit acts of violence and terror that they cannot succeed.” A freewill donation box will be at the front door and all proceeds will be given on behalf of the citizens of Ashland to the families of the victims in Orlando.
