On the holiday of Tisha B’Av (August 10-11, 2019), T’ruah organized Jewish vigils and protests in partnership with Bend the Arc, J Street, HIAS, the National Council of Jewish Women, Torah Trumps Hate and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. Together, we demanded an end to this unfolding modern-day catastrophe. In 2018, more than a dozen Jewish communities across the country held similar events. This year, the number quadrupled to more than 50.
