Watch - Rabbi Michael Schadick on the Priestly Blessing
Though we could not gather together in person for the 2020 Interfaith Thanksgiving Celebration, we were able to join together virtually. In this clip, Rabbi Michael Schadick closes out the celebration with a wonderful reflection on the Priestly Blessing. His words are followed by the Batavia Madrigal Singers, an interfaith choir, singing "The Lord Bless You and Keep You."
On this Election Tuesday, as we are acutely aware of our divides, it is crucial to remember that we have much for which we ought to be grateful. Even as we are in a very anxious and divisive time, we still have the ability to lean into thanksgiving and compassion. This year's Interfaith Thanksgiving Celebration, which will take place on November 21st at Temple Emanuel, will explore that very theme of "Choosing Gratitude" and will feature a keynote from Rabbi Schadick.
