There will be an empty Shabbat table installation on the Upper West Side to call attention to the 220 captives who are being held hostage by Hamas, and who will not be with their families for yet another Shabbat. It is modeled after the installation that was set up outside of the Tel Aviv Museum and has since been replicated internationally including New York City Times Square, the Jewish Quarter of Rome, Sydney’s Bondi Beach, and Los Angeles.

The installation will be on the south side of West 81st Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park.

Sponsored by B’nai Jeshurun, Ansche Chesed, the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew, Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, UJA Federation of New York, and Council Member Gale Brewer.
