Shabbat Service in Honor of Rep. John Lewis’s Sheloshim
Sat, Aug 15 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Rabbi Joshua states: The righteous of all nations have a share in the world to come (Tosefta Sanhedrin 13:2).
AA’s Anti Hate and Violence Committee invites you to a Shabbat service honoring the life and legacy of our synagogue district’s own representative, John Lewis. With the conclusion of sheloshim (30 days after passing), we welcome a very special guest, AA member, Lois Frank, who will offer reflections on Rep. Lewis for whom she worked alongside in our city’s fight for justice and equality for all. A special text study will conclude our service, helping to elevate Rep. Lewis’s soul into the world to come.
We are blessed to have a congregation which includes members that embrace a full spectrum of views with respect to any elected officials’ party affiliation and/or historical voting record; thus, we pray that this service honoring Representative Lewis may allow us to rise above our political differences and come together out of our mutual respect for the principles of justice and equality for all.
Shabbat Service: 9:30 am
Special Presentation: 11:15 am
