Opening Reception for The Sound of Justice at PAS

As we embark on a year of considering Jews in the American public sphere, experience the words of Rabbi Judah Nadich and prominent guest speakers who addressed Park Avenue Synagogue with messages of commitment to social justice. This exhibition highlights excerpts from the Rita and George M. Shapiro Audio Archive with illustrations from the Park Avenue Synagogue Archive, JTS and other sources. These speeches, documents, and photographs demonstrate how our Jewish community responded to the civil rights movement and the momentous events it set in motion, up to the present.

Let the words and deeds of the leaders who have inspired us in the past reinvigorate our dedication to make the world a better place for ourselves, our community, and our country.
