Gather with us onsite or online for an inspirational Shabbat Tzedek, a Sabbath of Justice, to celebrate the values of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with honored guest Tanisha M. Sullivan, President of the Boston branch of the NAACP. This service is open to people of all faiths.
Before the service, at 5:15 p.m., kids and families will enjoy pizza, with a separate space for teens to eat and socialize.
During Qabbalat Shabbat, young children will have the opportunity to leave the service for a kids-only justice learning program.
After the service, everyone is invited to an onsite festive oneg, catered by Black-owned restaurants, and featuring the opportunity to join in Israeli dancing.
