Massachusetts Jews, Armenians to Call for Genocide Recognition

Massachusetts State House

BOSTON–State Representative Rachel Kaprielian (Watertown) and Boston City Councilor Michael P. Ross (District 8) are hosting a press advisory to demonstrate the strengthening solidarity between the Jewish and Armenian-American communities as they underscore the importance of officially recognizing the Armenian Genocide by the Turkish government in 1915.
The event will feature Kaprielian and Ross as well as survivors of both the Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide, and a Rabbi and a member of the Armenian clergy, and is scheduled to take place on Thursday, August 30 at 5:30pm at the main steps in front of the Massachusetts State House. Prominent members of both the Jewish and Armenian communities, including Steven Grossman, State Representative Peter Koutoujian, and area municipal officials will also be in attendance.
