Metro New York Residents Invited to Two Special Events in March

HARLEM, N.Y. — March 2024 — While the date Sunday, March 24, may pass imperceptibly for many, millions around the world will gather at sundown to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ.

Considered the most important day of the year for Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Memorial is observed annually on Nisan 14 of the Jewish calendar in adherence to Jesus’ statement found at Luke 22:19, “Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” Though there are over 8.6 million Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world, over 20 million people attended the event last year.

“The Memorial is a global event that is attended by many who are not Jehovah’s Witnesses. We hope our neighbors in the local community will join us to gratefully remember what Jesus Christ accomplished by his sacrifice,” said Mark Godoy, spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The one-hour event will feature a talk highlighting the significance of Jesus’ death and what it means for all of mankind.

In metro New York, a special campaign will be launched during March 2024 to invite local residents to attend the annual observance of the Lord’s Evening Meal as well as a special public talk that will be delivered the week before.

Titled “The Resurrection—Victory Over Death!”, the special talk will be delivered at local Kingdom Halls on the weekend of March 16 and 17, 2024. This 30-minute, Bible-based public discourse will focus on the scriptural hope of a resurrection of the dead in the near future.

Harlem resident Betty Howard says: “I look forward to the special talk and Memorial every year. These events help keep me focused on what’s important now while also giving me the opportunity to appreciate what God will do for us in the future.”
