Reform Shabbat Service; Shabbat Shirah/Shabbat Tzedek
January 18 @ 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Join us for a special evening of song celebrating Shabbat Shirah, featuring songs of social justice in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Shabbat Shirah (the Sabbath of Song) is the name given to the Shabbat that includes Parsha Beshalach. The Torah reading of the week contains the Song of the sea (Exodus 15:1–18). This was the song by the Children of Israel after the Passage of the Red Sea.
Shabbat Tzedek is the Shabbat where we remember the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and celebrate the hard-fought victories of the civil rights movement. It is also a time of reflection and recommitment as our movement renews its efforts in the struggle for racial justice in North America.
