This year we are honoring the Beverly Multifaith Coalition with the Leah Shriro Award for Social Action. The Multifaith Coalition is a group of faith leaders in our community who meet regularly to engage with the differences and commonalities among our various faith traditions as a tangible way to promote respect, understanding, and peace in our community. They host programs such as a Thanksgiving Service and educational forums and also respond to issues that impact our community and world. After the tragic shootings at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27, 2018, the Multifaith Coalition—and the members of their faith communities—joined with us on the following day to fill our sanctuary with love and prayer to counter the hateful act earlier that weekend.
This special Shabbat service takes place on the Friday night before Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Join us for hors d’oeuvres at 6:30. The service itself will start at 7 and will be a mix of traditional liturgy and readings and songs that bring forth themes of Dr. King’s life and work and Jewish teachings around social justice followed by a special oneg.
We hope you will join us to honor the Beverly Multifaith Coalition and in remembrance of Leah Shriro herself. Leah was a strong advocate as the former chairperson of the Social Action Committee, longtime TBA member, parent, School Committee member, and co-chair for the creation of our beautiful Memorial Garden.
