Interfaith service set in Washington

The First Congregational Church in Washington will play host to an interfaith Thanksgiving service Nov. 20 at 4 p.m.

The theme of the service at the meetinghouse on the Green will be “Sharing the Harvest.”

Staff and interns from the Judea Garden at the Steep Rock Preserve will share their experiences of the past summer and their passion for the community garden.

The program will feature Celtic music on uilleann pipes and low whistle.

Rabbi Natan Margalit will offer the sermon.

The rabbi is president of Organic Torah, Inc., a non-profit organization which fosters holistic thinking about Judaism, environment and society.

He has taught at Bard College, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College.

Natan is Rabbi of The Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life and Visiting Rabbi at Congregation Adas Yeshorun in Rockland, Maine. Following the service, refreshments will be served in the church Parish House.
