About The Event
Temple Emanuel's third-annual Juneteenth Shabbat service will focus on the story of Leonard Guyes z"l and the work he did in the months during and after the Woolworth sit-in.
Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. It is also often observed for celebrating African-American culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865.
