Interfaith Service Focused On Carrying Dr. King’s Work on Poverty Forward

MLKinterfaithservice

Members of Beverly’s Temple B’nai Abraham, The First Congregational Church, The First Baptist Church, St Peter’s Church, and The Second Congregational Church gathered to honor The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  We focused on Dr. King’s work on poverty and our current issues.  There was music, spiritual reflection, and a strong sense of our shared values and efforts to help those in need in our own community.

Temple B’nai Abraham’s Mahala and Wilber Moffitt, Hailey Bellow and Lauren Sheris sang “Hinei Mah Tov” and “One Day” by Mattisyahu, with Marcy Yellin.

Neighborhood Shabbat Dinners February 6
avatar

shabbat-table-robert-bardach

Join us for a casual dinner, great company and some Shabbat joy. “Neighborhood Shabbat” is made up of pot-luck dinners in multiple members’ homes, and an opportunity to spend time with old friends and make new ones.

At its essence, Shabbat is about slowing down, spending time with friends and family, and expressing thanks for our blessings. Shabbat is truly an antidote to the frenetic lives so many of us lead. When we light the candles, we’ll pause for a moment to breathe out the busy week and breathe in an atmosphere of rest and peace. We’ll also enjoy sweet wine and grape juice, delicious challah, and good food – and you won’t have to cook a full meal on your own and do all the dishes!

Our last Neighborhood Shabbat drew 60 people – and was a lot of fun!

RSVP to the TBA office if you are interested in participating by February 1.  You will then be contacted about what home to attend and food contribution you might bring.
