On January 15th, Concert Choir singers had the privilege of performing at Temple Israel's Annual MLK Shabbat Service. This is the third year that BCC has had the opportunity to sing at Temple Israel for this service, and it is always a wonderful experience for the singers to participate in the service beyond singing. This year's guest speaker was Jackie Jenkins-Scott, president of Wheelock college. While speaking about MLK's work and the importance of education, she said that she believes if MLK were alive today, he would surely look to youth as teachers and inspiration. How fitting!
Students from Beacon Academy and Temple Israel's Monday Night School gave powerful speeches, CC sang a song combined with TI's youth chorus and as always the Temple Israel staff was very kind and lots of fun to work with.
