Sabbath of Dreams: The Hard Won and The Yet to Be 

January 20, 2017

Plymouth joins our Jewish neighbors and friends 6 pm, Friday, January 20, at Temple de Hirsch Sinai, 1511 E. Pike St. While the context will be an accessible Jewish Sabbath service, they offer insights of Dr. King, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and Gandhi, all of whom have a connection to this date and season. The goal of the event is to transcend the strife, discord and bitterness that has characterized the election and beyond, offering inspiration, direction and purpose for the future in ways that are unique to faith communities and traditions. People on Inauguration Night and beyond will engage in destructive behavior and nihilistic viewpoints about our prospects as a nation. That is easy to do. It is a greater challenge, but a more enduring and concerting ideal, to posit a more constructive, deliberate and values-driven approach to meet what lies ahead. Please bear this in mind as you convey the essence of this invitation to others and consider your role in the evening. –Rabbi Daniel Weiner
