Celebrate Juneteenth with Washington Hebrew Congregation

June 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We invite you, your family, and members of your community to Washington Hebrew Congregation to share a special Juneteenth Shabbat Service with members and clergy of Washington Hebrew Congregation and others in our community in the spirit of unity.  This celebration of freedom and friendship will take place on Friday June 16th at 6:00 PM at our Temple on Macomb Street.

This Juneteenth Shabbat will be led by me and by our guests Rabbi Micah Lapidus and Melvin Myles in prayer and songs.  Our readings emphasize the universal struggle for freedom and human dignity, and we will focus once more on those ongoing struggles that continue to plague our world.  This will be an opportunity to share in our common themes of faith, freedom, and the joy of independence as we build on our relationships.

 We welcome members of your community to accompany you and your family on this occasion.  We ask you fill out this brief web form, to let us know how many guests we can expect. Juneteenth Community Shabbat@WHC – Washington Hebrew Congregation (whctemple.org)
