Video: Interfaith Leaders Respond to Jewish Cemetery Desecration

Jewish, Christian and Muslim leaders spoke in solidarity Monday against the desecration of graves at Mt. Carmel Jewish Cemetery in Wissanoming. Bishop Burkat facilitated a press conference in which dozens of faith leaders from across Greater Philadelphia stood together in support of the Jewish community and others — including immigrants, refugees, Muslims and the LGBTQ community — subjected to a rising tide of hate and violence in our society. 6ABC Action News broadcast a portion of the event live on Facebook.
