Hauppauge Area Houses of Worship Zoom Annual Interfaith Pre-Thanksgiving Services
November 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hauppauge Area Houses of Worship to Host Zoom Annual
Interfaith Pre-Thanksgiving Services
Following the traditions of an interfaith gathering of the local houses of worship for the past 30-plus years, the Hauppauge community will again celebrate the start of the Thanksgiving season. This year, rather than meeting at a church or synagogue, the Interfaith Thanksgiving Service will be hosting a zoom presentation by various faiths – again, St. Thomas More R.C. Church, the Hauppauge United Methodist Church, Temple Beth Chai of Hauppauge, Calvary Lutheran Church of Hauppauge, will be offering a virtual gathering of the community. It will be hosted by Temple Beth Chai and led by Rabbi Stein, Cantor Stein, Fr. Antony Asir, Pastor Laurie Cline, and Pastor Lillian Hertel at 7pm on Wednesday, November 25, 2020. To join in the Interfaith Service and Celebration of the Thanksgiving season, please go to the Zoom information and Link below.
Started in the 1980’s, the local Hauppauge houses of worship have shared the celebration of the season with each other by taking turns hosting an interfaith worship service. The religious leaders as well as congregation members led prayers and joined in choir-led singing, in sharing A Capella hymns, as well as musical-instrumentations (shared by the various congregation’s members, who had practiced together for this celebration). A food collection of canned and boxed items (to assist with the local food pantries) as well as a monetary collection was always held. Fast forward a few decades, and the money collected became the basis for an annual scholarship to a Hauppauge High School senior from one of the participating houses of worship.
This year, due to the Covid-19 environment we are requesting that donations be in the form of monetary donations. Donations may be made by credit or debit card to www.bethchaiof hauppauge.com and click on “Donate Now”. Your donation of any size will be contributed to a local food pantry. Please select the “General Fund” when making your donation.
Looking forward to seeing you on zoom on Wednesday evening next week (November 25) at 7pm as we usher in the annual service, albeit “Covid style” and not in-person this year. For more info, please contact Temple Beth Chai of Hauppauge at (631) 724-5807.
Temple Beth Chai is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
