    First, thank you for posting this information, which I did not see elsewhere (as I am not a regular congregant in any house of worship). And thank you for attaching a downloadable flier. ‘Very handy to post and pass on.

    Now, as to the event. It was a wonderfully inclusive gathering that was uplifting and downright joyous. While there was a program, there were lots of spontaneous moments, too — audience children participated unrehearsed, for example. There was lots of laughter, applause and singing.

    A collection was taken for the victims of California wildfires. And the program finale was the entire congregation of participants singing America the Beautiful — ‘almost brought me to tears. The event literally included those from ‘sea to shining sea’.

    This is a must for me in coming years, and I hope for many of my neighbors in Forest Hills, as well.
