Solidarity Shabbat at Macomb St. Shabbat

In the last six weeks, we have seen Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike attacked in their houses of worship. Join us this Friday at Temple for a special Macomb St. Shabbat where we will stand in solidarity with our interfaith partners to denounce this senseless violence and show the world that love must be stronger than hate.

Bishop Marianne Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and Acting Sri Lanka Ambassador Sarath Dissanayake will both participate in the service.

More about Macomb St. Shabbat:
Macomb St. Shabbat is a soulful Shabbat evening with joy and connection at its center. Come at 6:00 pm for Chevruta — a deep and engaging Torah discussion for adults with our clergy, a Shabbat story corner for kids, and hot hors-d'oeuvres and drinks for everyone. We will light the candles and say kiddish together at 6:30 pm followed by our service at 6:40 pm. The service will have live musical accompaniment, and encourages participation, interaction, and connection. We’ll celebrate simchas, offer support through Mi Shebeirach and Kaddish prayers, and bless all our children. Afterward, eat, and drink, connect with clergy if you are new, or head off to begin your weekend. It’s all up to you!

Macomb St. Shabbat is made possible through the support of the Irene & Abe Pollin Music Program Initiative.
