MLK Jr. Shabbat
Friday, January 15
Enter our “fireside chat portal” for us to light Shabbat candles and explore together the words of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a post George Floyd world. What’s required is a willingness to convert Dr. King’s messages of hope and his prophesies for sister and brotherhood into a call for us to slow down the process and share what this means to us personally.
Guided by Rabbi Lori and Jill Housen, Racial Equity, Diversion & Inclusion (REDI Work) facilitator and Open Temple Co-Creator. The objective is to simply connect this past year’s events to our understanding of our past, who we want to become, and to begin to dream of that deepens the holy work around equity, race and justice.
“Sing unto God a new song.”
If God is already tired, as suggests the Psalm, of hearing the old song, all the more so will ordinary mortals be.
