Please join us for our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Shabbat Service, on January 13, the Friday before the MLK Holiday Weekend.The speaker for this year’s MLK Shabbat Service will be Temple member Will Saletan. A long-time writer for Slate, Will recently published a column focusing on how majority communities need to address issues of “implicit bias”. Traditionally, our MLK services celebrate the successes in our nation’s progress toward justice; this year’s service will give us the opportunity to look more inwardly so that we may be better equipped to continue that progress. As our Siddur teaches, “Let us learn in order to do”.There will be an opportunity for further discussion in HaMakom after the service.
