CRANFORD, NJ – Temple Beth-El Mekor Chayim will host an interfaith Thanksgiving service next Monday, sponsored by the Cranford Clergy Council and the Interfaith Human Relations Committee.
The service will feature a pledge of allegiance by Cranford boy and girl scouts, words from the Clergy Council and Mayor Thomas Hannen Jr., songs and inspirational readings, according to Rabbi Neil Tow.
“This year's service focuses on the themes of unity, peace, appreciation of our wonderful and amazing diversity and the different ways our religious faiths express thankfulness,” Tow said. “It's a way for community members to see each other, interact and build stronger bonds of community.”
In addition to the service, guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations for Cranford Family Care.
The service will be held on Monday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. at Temple Beth-El Mekor Chayim. It is open to the entire community with refreshments to follow.
