Oct. 16, 2016 Children’s Sabbath “Closing Educational Gaps”

Oct 16, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

On October 16, at 3 p.m.,  faith leaders and congregations will gather in Philadelphia for the 23rd Annual Children’s Sabbath, a special interfaith celebration to life up the city’s children, part of the National Observance of the Children’s Sabbath, sponsored by the Children’s Defense Fund.

The theme of this year’s Children’s Sabbath is, “Our Promise: Closing the Educational Gaps for Children.”  LAMPa is part of the Campaign for Fair Education Funding, which is working for fair and adequate funding for Pennsylvania public schools.  Our commonwealth is ranked among the least equitable in the nation in its support for education.

The service will feature a keynote address from Kevin Johnson, President and CEO of Opportunities Industrialization Center, and special performances from noted children’s choirs, including the Keystone and New Jersey Boychoirs, Pennsylvania and Garden State Girlchoirs and the Youth and Children’s Choir of the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-Day Saints.

All are welcome at Congregation Rodeph Shalom, 615 N. Broad Street. Learn more.
