Every year we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King in a joint concert between our synagogue and Reverend Roger Hambrick and his New York-based Green Pastures Baptist Church Choir. DC and New York, white and black, Jewish and Christian... we gather to honor the holiday for this man who meant so much to all of us. This year, the choir was joined by the legendary Neshama Carlebach, daughter of the revered Sholmo Carlebach and a talent in her own right.
It's a strange thing really - Orthodox Jews and Bronx Baptists dancing in the aisles singing Kivo Moed -- Now is the Time... quite remarkable. It's always moving - and no less so tonight -- just not much original to say about it. Just take a look and enjoy it for yourself.
Then stop over to this week's boomer blogging carnival. It's fun to read and I am really enjoying being part of it.
