9:30 -10:00 am, Prayer Service on the steps in front of First United Methodist Church (501 North Tryon Street)
10:00 am -12:00 pm, MLK Parade, Uptown Charlotte
We will be providing a bus to and from the parade that will leave in time to be present for the service. It will leave from the Blumenthal Portico outside of the LJCC at 8:30 am and will return to Shalom Park after the parade. Contact Herm Ziegler with questions.
Interfaith Prayer Service: Join Rabbi Klass, Rev. Val Rosenquist, and others for a short service before the parade begins. We will come together for song and prayer – Torah included! Parking is available in the church parking garage on 9th St., between Church and Tryon, though it may only be accessible from the Church St. entrance due to parade rerouting. Bring your parking ticket to the service to be validated.
Parade: Join Temple Beth El as we join with congregants from Antioch Missionary Baptist Church and Grier Heights Presbyterian to build bridges and march together in the MLK Parade. There are many ways to participate – you may walking alongside your fellow congregants, ride on the float – a favorite for the under-18 crowd – or sit in the warm bus! Questions? Email Rabbi Klass
