An MLK Shabbat experience like no other in a year like no other. Commemorate the spirit and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel with Rabbi Shira Stutman of the Sixth and I synagogue in Washington D.C. and Reverend Doctor D.K. Kearney of Turner Memorial AME Church, which worshiped in Sixth & I’s building for five decades. Virtually travel to Philadelphia and visit places of historical significance to the Jewish and Black communities as Rabbi Shira and Reverend Kearney discuss the work of seeking justice, past and future. As has become the tradition for this long-standing event, hear some soul-lifting music from Sixth & I and Turner Memorial AME choirs and listen to an inspiring sermon by Rabbi Shira.
Leading up to MLK Weekend, participate in a virtual justice fair to learn how you can have a direct impact on our Washington, DC community. Plus, be sure to tune in for Turner Memorial’s virtual Sunday service on January 17 at 10:00 am.
This event has been generously underwritten by The Revada Foundation of the Logan Family.
MLK Shabbat Experience is produced by the sixth&i synagogue in Washington D.C. and Turner Memorial AME Church in Maryland. NMAJH is honored to be a contributing partner.
