The Hebrew Congregation of St. Thomas will again observe Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday with a special service honoring seven high school students whose lives exemplify his teachings. The ceremony will be part of the Jan. 15th Erev Shabbat service, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to the service and to a reception at Lilienfeld House, across from the synagogue, after the service.
The seven students to be honored are:
Hannah Marie Charles Sts. Peter and Paul School
All seven were nominated for the award by their principals or guidance counselors. In addition to the recognition, each student will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond and a special book, "Shared Dreams, Martin Luther King and the Jewish Community.”
