Tu B’shevat at Har Sinai Congregation

Har Sinai Congregation will hold a public Tu B’shevat Seder dinner and wine tasting Friday, Jan. 17, at 5:30 p.m. to recognize Tu B’shevat, a Jewish festival celebrating the bounty of the natural world. The event will take place at the synagogue at 2905 Walnut Ave. in Owings Mills.

“Tu B’shevat celebrates the renewal of trees, which are vital not just to the natural world, but also to human existence. When we celebrate Tu B’shevat, we celebrate the entirety of the natural world in a way that connects us to the earth,” Rabbi Benjamin Sharff said. “We’re reminded to cherish the great gift of the natural world.”

Adam’s Garden of Eatin’ will cater the dinner of Sephardic three-bean salad, lemon thyme chicken breast in sun-dried tomato velouté sauce, sweet yellow corn polenta and haricot vert sauté, and Viennese desserts. Rabbi Sharff will lead the Seder, while congregant Stewart Sachs will serve as the sommelier.

Dinner costs $35 per person. For more information or to make reservations, contact Susan Bernstein at 410-654-9393 or sbernstein@harsinai-md.org.

Martin Luther King – Mt. Olive Church Joint Services

Baltimore Hebrew and Mt. Olive Baptist have joined forces in worship and song for a number of years, beginning when Mt. Olive’s church burned down and BHC welcomed church members to worship in their sanctuary. Now called “MLK Weekend with First Mt. Olive Freewill Baptist Church” and held Friday evening, Jan. 17th at 7 pm at BHC and again on Sunday, Jan. 19th at 10:30 am at First Mt. Olive’s Church, the choirs of both congregations will sing together to honor the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. While Reverend King is the impetus for this collaboration, the joy of combining the two congregations in worship is the real prize. On Friday night, at BHC, the two choirs will sing together and Bishop Brown will deliver the sermon. On Sunday morning at First Mt. Olive Church, 618 North Hammonds Ferry Road, Linthicum, the two choirs will again combine to lead the music and Rabbi Busch will deliver the sermon. We look forward to joining our friends from First Mt. Olive Church and encourage everyone in Baltimore’s Jewish community to join in these worship experiences.

Rev. Dr. King, Jr. Interfaith Service

Beth Shalom’s 17th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Interfaith Service

We celebrate this uplifting service with Pastor Tyrone P. Jones, IV and the choir of the First Baptist Church of Guilford, Rev. Jane Wood and the choir of Locust United Methodist Church, Pastor Larry Walker and the choir of Celebration Church, and Rabbi Susan Grossman and the choir of Beth Shalom Congregation, as well as visiting dignitaries and surprise guests.

During this service we will remember Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, and their relationship that extended beyond the social outreach and justice both sought. Rabbi Heschel became involved in the Civil Rights movement encouraged by Dr. King; and Dr. King took a public stance against the war in Vietnam thanks to Dr. Heschel .

Refreshments will be served following the service.
