The Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center has decided to postpone the Martin Luther King Shabbat performance by the Urban Voices Project scheduled for Friday, Jan. 14, due to the surge of COVID-19 cases in the county.
“The Shabbat service itself will be held as usual with no in-person attendance,” a PJTC announcement said. “The presentation that evening of the Annual Marv Gross Social Justice Award to Debby Singer will take place remotely.”
Shabbat services are streamed online through Facebook, YouTube and StreamSpot.
The announcement added that PJTC is working to reschedule the performance in the next several months.
Earlier, PJTC said the men and women of Urban Voices Project were set to share their experiences with homelessness through song and stories on January 14.
Urban Voices Project, a Los Angeles nonprofit, uses music to create supportive community spaces that bridge vulnerable individuals to a sense of purpose and improved health. Their music workshops engage men, women and families across the greater Los Angeles area in partnership with social, civic and healthcare organizations.
Urban Voices Project’s outreach ensemble performances shift the narrative and perception of homelessness in today’s society.
