Shabbat Morning Services: MLK Weekend

  • January 15 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

  • Venue:


Passionately traditional, boldly innovative, and deeply spiritual, Shabbat services at BJ are like no other. Join us on Shabbat mornings for soul-stirring prayer, infused with melodies from across the Jewish world, brought to life by our extraordinary musicians, and deepened by the wisdom of our tradition, calling us to renew our commitment to building a world of justice, dignity, and peace.

Our guest speaker will be the Rev. Dr. Lakeesha Walrond. As the first woman and 12th President of New York Theological Seminary, Dr. Walrond is committed to preparing faith and thought leaders to engage relevant, restorative, and revolutionary ministry. Dr. Walrond also serves as Preaching Pastor at the historic First Corinthian Baptist Church in New York, NY.
