The Interfaith and Intergroup initiative creates and strengthens understanding, respect and unity among different faith and ethnic communities. To foster this, the Council is involved in various programs including serving as a key partner with AJC Westchester/Fairfield and others for the annual Westchester Thanksgiving Diversity Breakfast; facilitating the Interfaith/Intergroup Roundtable; and continuing to be a supportive organization for our interfaith friends and leaders in the community.
“Westchester Stands United Against Antisemitism and Hate“
On June 7th, 2021, 700 community members would be standing in unity against antisemitism and hate in the JCC of Mid-Westchester’s parking lot this past Monday evening. With a program of inspiring speakers from a multitude of local organizations and houses of worship, to the music from Westchester Day School’s 2nd Grader chorus, and then more beautiful music to end the program from representatives of Kol Hazzanim/The Cantors of Westchester, it was a night we are proud to have organized with UJA Federation of NY and in partnership with American Jewish Committee (AJC), Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center and the host facility the JCC Mid-Westchester. There are so many people and organizations who helped make this meaningful program a success and we could not have done it without them.
