The Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians and Jews is hosting two services this week.
A decades-long tradition continues Wednesday, November 22, with the annual Palm Beach Interfaith Thanksgiving Service. On Thanksgiving Eve, The Royal Poinciana Chapel will host the service, which takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Since 1972, the Island’s Christian and Jewish faith community has come together to express gratitude for its many blessings. Clergy from Temple Emanu-El, St. Edward Catholic Church, The Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, and The Royal Poinciana Chapel participate. Rabbi Michael Resnick of Temple Emanu-El of Palm Beach will offer the Thanksgiving message. All are welcome.
The houses of worship rotate hosting the service each year.
Then, on Friday, November 24, the Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians and Jews will host the 13th annual Fellowship Friday. This is an opportunity for attendees to give back to the community.
Fellowship Friday begins with breakfast at Temple Emanu-El Palm Beach at 8:30 a.m. After dining, volunteers head out to one of five projects of their choice. The projects include a beach clean-up, assistance at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, organizing the food pantry at Adopt-A-Family Reach, assisting residents at the Levin Residential facility, or helping with the organization of toiletries and non-perishable food items that will be distributed to organizations that work with those in need.
