5. Stanton Street Shul Kiddush
The Stanton Street Shul, a historic Orthodox congregation in the Lower East Side, invites the public to participate in a traditional Kiddush, or blessing, to mark the Yahrtzeit, or anniversary, of the death of the 146 victims of the fire. The congregation recognizes that many of the immigrant victims of the fire lived near the Shul.
Today, the Shul continues to support the defense of immigrant rights and the rights of poor people who, like those victims of the fire, still struggle to make a living. The kiddush will take place on Saturday, March 24 at 11:45am to 12:35 pm.
