Yahrtzeit Kiddush for the Victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire
Saturday, March 18, 2017 • 20 Adar 577711:45 AM - 12:35 PM
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 in the Lower East Side with a traditional kiddush to mark the Yahrtzeit (anniversary) of their passing (sponsored by Dr. Elissa Sampson and Prof. Jonathan Boyarin.) We know that many of those who died lived in close proximity to our Shul. 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.
