On May 3, 2013, the JCUA will participate in an interfaith vigil at the Broadview Detention Center. We will offer our support and prayers to those held at Broadview and subsequently deported. JCUA members will represent a larger Jewish voice demanding comprehensive immigration reform in the United States. The vigil will also serve to remember the tragic events in Postville, IA 5 years ago, as we seek to turn tragedy into a victory for justice.
We ask that you join us in standing with those held at Broadview and their families by participating in the vigil with us.
7:15 AM – Vigil begins at Broadview Detention Center.
Broadview Detention Center
1930 Beach Street, Broadview, IL
- Once we know who wants to come, we will plan for transportation for those not driving.
- When you RSVP , please indicate if you need transportation.

JCUA Director of Organizing
