Mourning Palestinian Lives Lost in the Great March of Return

  • St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church 82 Prospect Street White Plains, NY, 10606 United States (map)

We gather on Sunday evening, May 20, at 7:30 for a time of mourning for Palestinian lives lost in the Great March of Return. Pastor Dr. Gawain de Leeuw is kindly opening up the doors of his church for those of us who would like to take the time to grieve collectively. He will lead us in evening prayers and ancient hymns in his tradition, and we will light candles, read the names and ages of the Palestinians who have lost their lives and share what we know of their lived experience and families. For those who are observing fasting this month of Ramadan, we invite folks to bring a dish to share afterwards for a community iftar (breaking of the fast). St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church is located at 82 Prospect Street, White Plains, NY 10606 (street parking only). Please RSVP to Nada at if you plan to attend.
