In honor of Martin Luther King Day, this month’s Musical Kabbalat Shabbat will have music with an African-American flavor and include texts from the Hebrew scriptures that inspired our nation’s most important champion of civil rights. I will be leading the service together with Rabbi Eugene Wernick, and will be joined on the bimah by wonderful guest musicians.

As always, this service is free and open to all, with a festive reception immediately following. If you are not a member of Or Olam, please register in advance so we can know how many people to expect.
