      CBHT and St. James AME Church Joint MLK Shabbat and Unity Service

      The Lotte Meyerson Tikkun Olam Committee initiated what turned into a fantastic exchange and collaboration for Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday recognition.

      On Friday, January 11th, the choirs of both houses of worship collaborated to provide music and the Rev. Brent Edwards provided the sermon for our CBHT Shabbat service.
      Rev. Edwards’ sermon emphasized that we all walk with God through our daily ups and downs. The combined choirs and the St. James dancers made for a deep and meaningful experience.

      On Sunday, January 13th, many members of CBHT attended a Unity Service at St. James AME Church. The two choirs again joined their voices and Rabbi Meiri provided the sermon. She spoke of Dr. King’s words that "Unity is the great need of the hour." She went on to describe the weekend events as “an affirmation that we are better together – as a congregation and as a community.” It was an exciting and profound service! Special thanks go to Vivian Ellner for working tirelessly to initiate this collaboration, and to Rabbi Meiri and the CBHT choir for making our shared services a reality. The Tikkun Olam Committee hopes to continue to work on collaborating with St. James AME Church.
