Central Reform Temple and the Zamir Chorale will present the eighth annual “A Light Through The Ages,” a celebration of Chanukah in story, song and light. This event will be held on Sunday, December 10, at 4:00 pm at the Temple’s home at Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury Street, in Boston.
Every year, The Temple honors community leaders representing organizations and issues that emulate the core spiritual and social values of the congregation. Each of these special guests will participate in the lighting of the Menorah, symbolically spreading the light of their various gifts to the civic, cultural and social life of our city. We thrilled to announce that Stephen L. Boswell, MD, President & CEO of Fenway Health, is one of this year’s honored guests.
Other guests at this year’s celebration include Company One, Shawn LaCount, Artistic Director; Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, The Rt. Rev. Alan M. Gates, Bishop Diocesan; The Greater Boston Food Bank, Catherine D’Amato, President & CEO; Jewish Climate Action Network (JCAN), Rabbi Katy Allen, Co-founder and President; Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition, Margo Simon Golden, President; MIRA (The Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition), Eva Millona, Executive Director; Tenacity, Ned Eames, Founder and CEO.
The original text of “A Light Through the Ages,” written by Rabbi Howard Berman, chronicles the celebration of Chanukah in different times and places over the past 2000 years – celebrating the struggle for peace, justice and religious freedom through times of darkness and moments of light and triumph. The voices of the world renowned Zamir Chorale, under the leadership of artistic director Joshua Jacobson, will accompany these timeless stories with traditional and contemporary holiday music.
