During the holiday of Passover, the Jewish community invited people of all faiths to gather for a pre-walk Seder ritual, in which they sought to connect Jewish tradition’s commitment to ending oppression and to welcoming the stranger with the fight for immigrant rights today; gathering as an act of solidarity with the New Sanctuary Coalition and friends who are “at risk” for detention and deportation from ICE.
The sedar was organized and led by Rabbi Joshua Stanton, Rabbi Lauren Grabelle Herrmann and immigration attorney/Avodah alumna Rachel Davidson – in collaboration with Ravi Ragbir and the New Sanctuary Coalition.
The JDL successfully frustrated the lefties, particularly illegal felon Ravi Ragbir, who attempted to block the JDL from assembling in a public park (see video)
Every Thursday, Ravi Ragbir and his New Sanctuary Coalition bring together faith leaders, immigration activists and community members to march in silence and pray outside 26 Federal Plaza — in solidarity with those ( illegals) whom they claim are “denied their Right to Remain”.
NO BORDERS USA- SI! (that’s their ticket)
Part 1 video – at 3:16 to 3:28 Ravi foolishly attempts to force the JDL (in a public park) to move away from the Sanctuary Sedar.
Ravi Ragbir (illegal felon) demanding Solidarity with Illegal Migrants.
Part 2 video. Ravi’s Passover Sanctuary Sedar demanded LIBERATION for all illegals.
The NY-JDL leaders asked: Should I bring matzah? 🙂
The sedar was followed by the Jericho Walk from 11:00 am-12:30pm, SEVEN times round and round 26 Federal Plaza (Foley Square is between the courts and Federal Plaza). I left: been to one seven times around- you’ve been to the ALL.
