This weekend, we are excited to welcome the duo of Lapidus & Myles to join us, showcasing their goal of strengthening the longstanding ties between the Black and Jewish communities. Their music and message is infused with a spirit of love, respect, peace, and justice, and is a model for all people of conscience who understand that we are better together,

Lapidus & Myles is a collaboration between two faith-based musicians in Atlanta. Micah Lapidus is a reform rabbi and composer-in-residence at The Temple. Melvin Myles is a highly regarded soloist with the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church Choir, former pulpit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. You can listen to their first album of original music, Better Angels, under the artist name “Melvin Myles” wherever you stream music.
