Honor the Legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King and His Committment to Racial Equity and Justice
with Guest Speaker Reverend Timothy Warner

Reverend Timothy B. Warner is Pastor of Emory Grove United Methodist Church and Senior Pastor of Mill Creek United Methodist Church. He served in County Executive Ike Leggett’s Office of Community Partnerships as Community Liaison for the African American and Faith Communities, and then as Chief Engagement and Partnership Officer for Montgomery County Public Schools.

Reverend Warner’s presentation to B’nai Israel is part of a “preacher swap,” which will have Rabbi Safra speaking at Reverend Warner’s churches on January 17. Reverend Warner and Rabbi Safra have been meeting regularly for study and conversation, and they are eager to a piece of their friendship with their respective communities.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Collections Drive for IDENTITY

Helping Vulnerable High School Students 

One of the many racial equity issues exacerbated by COVID-19 has been educational inequity and the learning gap experienced by Black, Brown and poor children.

We are collecting warm winter hats/gloves/scarves, socks, toiletry items, and small games for these students. If you shop on our Amazon or Target wish lists, you can choose to have donations shipped directly to B’nai Israel.

Donations can be dropped off at B’nai Israel on Sunday, January 17, 10:00 AM–12:00 PM.

You can also contribute directly to Identity here. Please put “B’nai Israel” in the comments box.

For more information, contact Deedee Jacobsohn.
