Temple Emanu-El, in partnership with the Calvary Baptist Church, presents its annual service honoring the late Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. King’s message of human equality and engaged pluralism remains as urgent and apposite today as when he first affirmed that people must “not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Join us as we raise our voices in musical and prayerful tribute to Dr. King and his legacy.

The service, a musical celebration of freedom, faith, and inspiration, will follow the weekly Sabbath liturgy and will include selected readings from the writings of Dr. King. Rabbi Ira L. Korinow and Cantor Vera Broekhuysen, both of Temple Emanu-El, will conduct the service; members of the Greater Haverhill Clergy Association will also participate. The Temple Emanu-El Choir, conducted by Cantor Vera Broekhuysen, the Calvary Baptist Church Sanctuary Choir, under the direction of Music Minister Joe DeVoe, and the Bradford Christian Academy High School Choir, under the direction of Gina McKeown, will present musical selections together in celebration of the great civil rights leader.

The service will be followed by an Oneg Shabbat (social hour). Everyone in the community is invited to attend.
