The interfaith Thanksgiving service is a long tradition in Verona, but it will look different this year because of the pandemic.
Instead of being held at one of our houses of worship, it will be held on the steps of Town Hall one Sunday, November 29, at 3 p.m. Masks and physical distancing will be required.
The service will feature speakers from Islamic, Jewish and Christian traditions, a soloist, prayers,
the annual reading of the Proclamation of Thanksgiving, and remarks by Mayor Jack McEvoy
The participating congregations the Islamic Center of Verona, First Presbyterian Church of Verona, the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit, Our Lady of the Lake and B’nai Shalom of West Orange, which welcomed many members of the former Congregation Beth Ahm when the Verona synagogue closed.
