The Westchester Jewish community came together in love in response to the hatred shown in Pittsburgh. Over 1500 hundred people of all faiths gathered for a county-wide vigil. Thank you to the synagogues of White Plains and especially Congregation Kol Ami for hosting the event and for the over all support of the Westchester Jewish Council’s 150 member organizations. Special thanks to our clergy, AJC Westchester Fairfield, our elected officials, members of law enforcement, UJA Federation and ADL.

The Westchester Jewish Council will continue to unite the community in this time of sorrow. Please contact us at any time.




The Westchester Jewish Council, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Westchester since 1975 is convening an educational  trip to Israel for Westchester elected officials and community leaders. Click here to help support this special effort.
