Gov. Jared Polis has signed a proclamation recognizing April 29 as #EndJewHatred Day.
“We are grateful for the support of Governor Polis in issuing this proclamation,” said Andrea Hyatt, a member of the #EndJewHatred Denver chapter.
“The proclamation acknowledges that the Jewish people deserve to live openly and freely with full protection of our civil rights. It is also an endorsement of our focus on April 29 as #EndJewHatred Day.”
April 29, #EJH day is primarily a social media event.
Individuals throughout the country are encouraged to post how they feel about being Jewish and use #EndJewHatred or @EndJewHatred.
It is an opportunity for Jews to stand united in their commitment that they have the right to live without fear.
The plan is that people will be posting April 28-30 to create a viral moment with pictures and words that demonstrate their pride.
#EndJewHatred Day will be marked with a Shabbat service Saturday, April 29, at BMH-BJ. Services begin 9:45 a.m. with a speaker at 11:30 am, followed by a kiddush.
“EJH is a volunteer-based grassroots movement,” explained Debbie Jacobs, a member of the EJH Denver chapter. “We hope to bring together people of goodwill from all political and religious affiliations to help us finally end Jewish hatred in our lifetime.”
