In honor of World AIDS Day, AIDS Fund and Congregation Rodeph Shalom will present a display of The AIDS Memorial Quilt on Sunday, November 21, 2021 from 1-4 p.m., in partnership with the National AIDS Memorial. The Quilt is the premiere symbol of the AIDS pandemic, a living memorial to a generation lost to AIDS and an important HIV prevention education tool.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt is an epic 54-ton tapestry that includes nearly 50,000 panels dedicated to more than 105,000 individuals. With hundreds of thousands of people contributing their talents to making the memorial panels, and tens of thousands of volunteers to help display it, the Quilt is considered the largest community arts project in history. Each panel memorializes the life of a person lost to AIDS and serves as a compelling reminder that the fight is not over yet.

Proof of vaccination & masks are required.
