The event, co-sponsored with Darkaynu, an egalitarian minyan in Warrington, Pa., was intended to bring the two communities together and help raise funds for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, according to Darkaynu's Rabbi Jon Cutler.
"The theme was the unity beyond race in the sense that African-American Jews and white Jews can join together in concert in honoring Martin Luther King," Cutler
said, noting that the concert's title was a nod to the 50th anniversary of the Selma March in Montgomery, Ala. "There are no racial boundaries, we are, all together, Jews."
Though the two congregations have collaborated often in the past, Cutler
said, the concert marked the first time they have cooperated in putting together "a specific, non-religious service."
said they were still trying to determine the amount of funds raised at the concert.
lauded those who showed at the event, in spite of the poor weather.
"For people to brave" the icy roads "is amazing," Cutler
"My purpose of pulling this whole thing together was really to expose the African-American Jewish community to the white Jewish community and vice versa."
added that there is an encore event being planned for the spring due to the concert's success and the fact that many people were unable to attend.
