Join Kol Or, JCUA’s Jews of Color Caucus, for our third annual Juneteenth Havdalah as we celebrate freedom. Be sure to grab your red soda as we enjoy some learning and fun! This event is family-friendly and is open to all. We will complete the evening with Havdalah (note: Havdalah will take place earlier than the official time as Shabbat ends late that night).
Come join us as we celebrate and honor FREEDOM! Juneteenth is the annual commemoration of the emancipation of Africans and African-Americans from slavery. It was first celebrated on June 19th, 1865 when news of the Emancipation Proclamation finally made its way to Galveston, Texas. Since then, Juneteenth has become a yearly tradition in many Black communities across the United States.
