Thanksgiving Service and Rabbi's Lecture

Thursday, November 28, 7:45AM

In 1789, Shearith Israel responded to George Washington’s call for a day of national thanksgiving with a special service. Today, we observe Thanksgiving with the addition of Psalms during Shahrit and the omission of tahanunim. 

Following morning services, Rabbi Soloveichik will deliver a Thanksgiving-themed address while our younger children partake in a special hesed crafts activity in the Fidanque Youth Room.  After the lecture, congregants are invited to enjoy refreshments in the Elias room as the chilren prepare to watch the parade on our portico.
