Join The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and other Jewish, Muslim, and faith leaders in a “NEVER AGAIN” MORNING VIGIL TO END THE GENOCIDAL SLAUGHTER OF THE ROHINGYA MINORITY IN MYANMAR on Sept. 18th, 2017 (Monday), 9-10:00am at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, NYC (47th Street and First Avenue, access via 2nd Avenue).
As all the world leaders gather and meet at the United Nations General Assembly next week, what action will they take to stop the genocide in Burma??
We are demanding that Myanmar cease its decimation of the Rohingyas and restore full human rights to all, in prayer, and in hearing the blasts of the Shofar.
