Central Reform Temple of Boston Chanukah Celebration: A Light Through The Ages Worship Bulletin Message for Local Churches
HOLD THE DATE! COMMUNITY CHANUKAH CELEBRATION AT CENTRAL REFORM TEMPLE SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 4;00 PM
Central Reform Temple extends a special welcome to the people of King's Chapel to join us for the tenth annual Boston presentation of “A Light Through The Ages,” a celebration of Chanukah in story, song and light. This event, which has become a beloved holiday season tradition for hundreds of people of all faiths, will be held Sunday, December 2, at 4:00 pm at the Temple’s shared home at Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury Street, in Boston.
The Temple will once again honor community leaders representing organizations and issues that share the core spiritual and social values of the congregation. Each of these special guests will participate in the kindling of the Menorah, symbolically spreading the light of their various gifts to the civic, cultural and social life of our city. This year the Temple will honor the neighboring churches in the Back Bay/Downtown neighborhoods, with whom its congregation has worked closely over the past 15 years in shared service to our community - Arlington Street Church, Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Church of the Covenant, Emmanuel Church, First Church of Boston, Kings Chapel, Old South Church and Trinity Church. Rev. Joy Fallon will participate. All members of our congregation are invited to represent King's Chapel and share in this celebration!
The 40 voices of the world renowned Zamir Chorale, under the leadership of artistic director Joshua Jacobson, will accompany these timeless stories with traditional and contemporary holiday music.
Rabbi Howard Berman says, “Chanukah, with its universal message of the light of spiritual freedom and the embrace of diversity, truly can and should be celebrated as an interfaith experience with our friends and neighbors in the community…we offer what has always been a family tradition as a special gift to our extended family throughout the city of Boston.”
All are welcome to this free event. No reservations or tickets are required.
