Hundreds of Long Islanders gathered at a prayer service and a vigil Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, to reflect on recent events that have created a national dialogue on race relations. More than 150 people attended a community vigil at Bolden Mack Park in North Amityville; in Glen Cove, Rabbi Irwin Huberman, of Congregation Tifereth Israel, and Pastor Roger Williams led a service at First Baptist Church to reinforce the ideal that the town, as well as America, are based on unity and diversity.
