Shabbat Shira


Our Special social justice shabbat honoring MLK

It is truly a Shabbat of Song as we celebrate the Torah portion where the Israelites cross the Red Sea! But this year, on January 18 at 6:15 pm, we will also reflect upon the lessons of Martin Luther King Jr. as this special Shabbat also coincides with Shabbat Tzedek, the Shabbat of Justice. We welcome back Leeav Sofer’s Urban Voices Project, a Skid Row Choir, bringing the healing power of music to those disenfranchised with homelessness, mental illness, and unemployment. Cantor Weiss will lend her beautiful voice and lead the Spark band and Junior Cantors in what promises to be a memorable musical event at Temple Emanuel.
