Love Love. Hate Hate

One of the things I love most about working in a synagogue is that we get unique opportunities to bring innovative, exciting, meaningful, and significant programs and speakers to our community members. This Friday is no exception.

On Friday evening, at the Reform Temple of Forest Hills, we will be featuring a guest speaker: Christine Quinn who will be speaking about an important public service campaign that is designed to celebrate diversity and combat hate crimes called "Love Love. Hate Hate." Christine Quinn is the Speaker of the New York City Council and an avid anti-hate crimes proponent. We are lucky and honored to have her in our congregation and our community this Shabbat. Services will begin at 8pm.

I am so excited to hear about this new campaign, what she has to say about how NY is trying to combat hate-crimes and work on legislation that is FAIR and EQUAL for everyone, and to see how our community welcomes her and challenges her on important issues. You can bet there will be a follow-up blog....stay tuned!!! Or better yet...see you at services!
