This year’s Rye Historical Society luncheon was held in recognition of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York. Guest speaker Professor Emerita Barbara Winslow of Brooklyn College, CUNY presented a detailed history of the state suffrage movement and highlighted some of the courageous women who made this a reality three years before the United States passed the 19th Amendment.

 

More than a few good women were among the guests at the luncheon, held March 2 at American Yacht Club.

Every week Bread of Life, a Rye-based nonprofit, feeds 10,000 people around the county, from senior residents in the Town of Rye, to children in Port Chester, and a men’s center in White Plains. It redistributes food from area restaurants and grocery stores like Trader Joe’s. It’s a considerable undertaking.

Bread of Life is hosting a fundraiser at Serendipity Labs May 3 from 6:30-8:30. Tickets are $30 each.

Committed to the idea that each person is created in the Divine Image, we, the undersigned Rye, Port Chester, Harrison, and Rye Brook religious leaders stand united against the recent spate of anti-Semitic acts carried out locally and around the nation.

 

Harassment through bomb-threats to Jewish Community Centers, intimidation through swastika graffiti, and the horrifying desecration of Jewish cemeteries all run counter to the religious values that we all share. We commit to remaining vigilant in opposing anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination, prejudice and intimidation against any of God’s children.

 

Rather than succumb to fear, rather than close ourselves off, we will continue to build bridges of cooperation, understanding, and holiness among our congregations and all people of goodwill. In doing so, we will demonstrate to the world that Westchester County remains a place that, in the words of President George Washington, “gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.”
