SAJ Centennial Shabbat Kick-Off
January 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EST
On January 27, 1922, Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan led the first service of the Society for the Advancement of Judaism. Nearly 100 years to the day, SAJ will kick off our 100th Anniversary Year with a Shabbat service celebrating our founding! Led by Rabbi Lauren Grabelle Herrmann and Cantor Lisa Shapanka Arbisser and joined by the Hiddur Band, speakers will include elected officials Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine, Congressman Jerry Nadler, Councilmember Gale Brewer, Grace Church Rev. Nigel Pearce and other interfaith friends, and Rabbi Deborah Waxman (President and CEO, Reconstructing Judaism). All are welcome!
Given the rapidly changing Covid situation, we are assessing the appropriate in-person capacity for the Kickoff Weekend. If, as we hope, we will have both in-person and Zoom options for these programs, we will email an in-person sign up form on January 21. Sign up will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
