Juneteenth is the annual commemoration of the emancipation of Africans and African-Americans from slavery. It was first celebrated on June 19th, 1865 when news of the Emancipation Proclamation finally made its way to Galveston, Texas.

In honor of this occasion, Kol Or is excited to invite you to our second annual Juneteenth Havdalah as we celebrate our freedom with a potluck, some learning, and fun! This event is family-friendly and is open to all. Guests welcome. We will complete the evening with Havdalah (note: Havdalah will take place earlier than the official time as Shabbat ends late that night).

Date/Time: Saturday, June 29th, 6:30 pm
Place: Beth Shalom B’nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew Congregation

6601 S Kedzie Ave
