One week after the terror attacks on Mumbai, the Princeton University community will gather on Wednesday, Dec. 3, for an interfaith vigil, paying tribute to the city and those affected by the attacks.
A candle procession will begin at the Frist Campus Center South Lawn at 9:15 p.m. Participants will walk to Murray-Dodge Hall, where the vigil will take place from 10 to 11 p.m.
Speakers will include students and Rabbi Eitan Webb, leader of the Chabad chaplaincy on campus. Webb will talk about his friend Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, who was killed along with his wife, Rivka, in the attacks. There will be prayers from various traditions and a unity statement from student groups. The vigil also will include music and time for reflection and remembrance.
The service is being organized by several student organizations, including Princeton Hindu Satsangam, Chabad, Princeton Buddhist Students' Group, Muslim Students Association and South Asian Students Association, as well as the Office of Religious Life.
