Next week, on Friday, January 12, the Afro-Semitic Experience will mark its 20th anniversary by sharing our music at an interfaith service to celebrate and honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year we’ll be sharing our music at Congregation Mishkan Israel in Hamden, Connecticut, it’s the synagogue where we first started our project twenty years ago. This year is Rabbi Herbert Brockman’s last year leading the service as he will be retiring from Mishkan Israel in June. So this is a service that will be emotional and intense on many levels as Rabbi Brockman has always served as a beacon for social justice in the New Haven area and while we welcome change, in this case it will be bittersweet. The service is at 7:30 pm, but we will be giving a short pre-service concert beginning at 7:00 p.m. I hope you can join us for the entire evening as it sure to be one filled with hope and tears. Congregation Mishkan Israel is located at 785 Ridge Road in Hamden, Connecticut.
