Bringing in the Light for Justice Zoom Pulpit Exchange MLK Weekend
Join us for our 34th Pulpit Exchange in Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.!
Join us Friday through Monday, January 15–18, for a weekend of festive music, worship, sermons, and multiple opportunities for safe and warm online interaction between the members of Congregation Emanu-El and Third Baptist Church.
The weekend events will begin Friday evening with a Pre-Oneg gathering on Zoom, followed by the Shabbat service. Reverend Amos Brown will deliver the sermon as we welcome the light of Shabbat into our homes and our community. On Sunday, Congregation Emanu-El members are invited to take part (virtually) in Third Baptist Church’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday morning service. Rabbi Jonathan Singer will deliver the sermon and Cantor Arik Luck will participate in song.
Pre-Oneg Gathering + MLK Commemoration Shabbat Service
Friday, January 15; Pre-Oneg: 6:00 pm, Service: 6:30 pm
Registration has closed for our interactive Shabbat service. However, you are welcome to watch on Facebook Live (no Facebook account required) or on our Livestream page.
This MLK day, join Congregation Emanu-El and Repair the World for a day of service and learning as we shed light on the topic of food justice!
Sign up for a volunteer spot between 12:00-3:00 pm on Monday, January 18, as we rescue and deliver food in partnership with Food Runners, a local organization that diverts 17 tons of food that would otherwise be wasted to people in need each week. This opportunity delivers meals to soup kitchens, group homes, and low-income senior apartments. The deadline for signing up is Thursday, January 14.
COVID Protocol: Volunteers are asked to exit their cars to quickly load the food in and out, complying with all current city-mandated COVID guidelines. Masks are required and gloves will be provided. Entirely contactless options are possible, and these can be arranged when the Food Runners coordinator confirms details with you the Friday before this opportunity.
