MLK Day Shabbat and Shabbat Shira

Date: Friday, January 18, 6:00 pm
Location: Main Sanctuary

Help us celebrate Dr. King’s legacy on this rare convergence of our MLK Shabbat and Shabbat Shira. We’re thrilled to welcome Rev. Dr. Amy Butler of The Riverside Church in Harlem. Dr. Kin g often spoke at Riverside Church, where he gave one of his most famous speeches “Beyond Vietnam.” There will also be special performances by Riverside’s gospel choir and Central’s teen choir.

Rev. Butler is the first woman to serve as Senior Minister at The Riverside Church and was previously the first woman to lead the historic Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. In addition to her role at Riverside, she recently authored a memoir published in February 2018.
