The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh will be hosting a rally against antisemitism on June 1, at 6 p.m. on the steps of the City-County building, 414 Grant Street.

The event, “Stand Against Antisemitism,” was organized in response to the recent rise of antisemitic incidents in the United States, many of which have been violent, according to event organizers.

Elected officials, community leaders and interfaith leaders will join the rally.

“We stand together against antisemitism without condition or qualification!” read promotional materials for the event. “Antisemitism has no place in Pittsburgh or anywhere.”

Several local Jewish organizations and congregations are cosponsoring the rally, including the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle.

The event is open to the entire Pittsburgh community. PJC
