Join us at our annual Martin Luther King Jr. Erev Shabbat Service. NYS Governor Kathy Hochul will be speaking at this special event.

The MLK Erev Shabbat service is a time-honored tradition at Temple Beth-El, ever since the reverend spoke at the synagogue in the 1960s. Dr. King’s meaningful—and still relevant—words from his civil rights speech continue to resonate with us.

Led by Rabbi Brian Stoller, Rabbi Megan Brumer and Cantor Adam Davis, the service will include music by an interfaith chorus led by Dr. Nigel Gretton and the Shir Appeal Jewish a capella ensemble from Tufts University. The special music, choral highlights and specially selected readings will heighten this meaningful annual event.

The entire community is invited to attend our Erev Shabbat Service. A special Oneg Shabbat follows.

For your safety, no bags or backpacks will be permitted. Please allow time for parking and to pass through security.
