MLK Shabbat Services
January 15, 2016 @ 7:15 pm - 8:10 pm
All are welcome to join us at 7:15 Friday nights for Shabbat Services.
This weekend, our nation will pay tribute to the memory of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who, through his words and actions, brought these biblical teachings to life. During his short life, the Reverend could only dream of a time when the injustices that surrounded him would give way to a society where the laws of the land protected the freedoms and the rights of all peoples regardless of the color of one’s skin, the beliefs of one’s heart or the origins of one’s heritage.
You do not need to be a member to join us in prayer as we welcome the Sabbath bride. Immediately following services, we gather together at the oneg (joy) for cookies and conversation.
HCRJ uses of a modernized edition of the Union Prayer Book. It contains extensive transliteration of most of the Hebrew prayers, thereby enabling those who do not read Hebrew to participate in the liturgy.
We encourage you to discover within its pages a fresh approach and a return to the ideals of Reform Judaism.
