A viewing of the Film: “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not be Silent” for Martin Luther King will be during the service.
A documentary film about the leading rabbi in 1930’s Berlin who emigrated to America. Rabbi Prinz became one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest confidantes and spoke just prior to Martin Luther King at the March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 . Rabbi Prinz’ address has been widely acclaimed throughout the history of the civil rights movement and is remembered for its contention that in the face of discrimination, “the most urgent, the most disgraceful, the most shameful and the most tragic problem is silence.”
In this time of racial tension, Rabbi Prinz is a leading example of empathy and taking action in the face of prejudice, standing up for those oppressed and living a righteous life.
