March 24

Saturday, March 24th

Morning prayer services at 9:30am
Kiddush at noon

 
The Stanton Street Shul invites the public to remember with us all those who perished in the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. Please join us to honor their memory with a traditional Lower East Side Yurzeit kiddush (repast) to mark the anniversary of their death. Most of those who perished were young women and girls who lived in the Lower East Side and Little Italy, in close proximity to our historic Lower East Side immigrant Shul built in 1913. Their ongoing struggle to earn a living as poor immigrants reminds us of the necessity of defending immigrant rights, and the rights of poor people today. May their memory be a blessing for all of us.
 
The kiddush (or light meal) will be held at noon right after the Saturday Sabbath morning prayer services that start at 9:30am. All who participate in the yurtzeit kiddush are most welcome to attend services. Author and activist Ruth Sergel will introduce the kiddush. Come join us in remembrance as we join the past to the future.
