To honor the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. with services and volunteer projects, members of our Jewish communities spread out to various Philadelphia neighborhoods. Observed on the third Monday of January each year, MLK Day has become an opportunity for people to volunteer as a tribute to the man who changed a nation and whose life was cut far too short. Our Jewish communities, long known for their close allegiance to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, has often taken an active role in organizing or participating in MLK Day of Service projects.
