Havdalah and Sing for Justice

Date: Saturday, January 15, 2022
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Adas Israel Musician-in-Residence Micah Hendler and special guest Roderick Giles for an MLK weekend “Havdalah and Sing for Justice” focused on songs and stories of racial justice and the African American tradition.  We will begin with a short musical havdalah as we bid farewell to Shabbat, and transition into the work of building a more just world through song. Our special guest Roderick Giles, director of the gospel ensemble Grace, will teach us songs that can feed our souls and galvanize us to action.

We will have the opportunity to connect with and support community members across faiths and across the city who are driving impact in areas of concern to all who work to bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice. Our voices, raised in harmony, can help power the change we want to see in our city, in our country, and in our world. The Havdalah and Sing for Justice series is in partnership with Justice Choir DC and invites community members of all backgrounds, faiths, and levels of singing experience to join us and share their voices fully.  We meet in person, indoors, masked, and socially distanced, for the event; for those who cannot join in person, you are welcome to join on zoom.

We hope you will join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. this year through communal song and collective action.
