“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Calling all who wish to bring more love into our communities!  In light of the Pittsburgh shooting, Rabbi David Fainsilber and the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe seek to bring people together in love to create song within community as you have never experienced before. Young and old, come stand with us — come sing with us!  Make this your first time up on stage at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center as we learn the simplified arrangement of a song “Light is Returning/Banish the Darkness” and then sing it to produce a sound about bringing more light to ourselves, our communities, and our greater world.  No need to be a superb singer; you just need to bring your love of singing. The final artistic product? An amazing video of the experience (featuring you) that will be promoted world-wide, with the backdrop of soulful voices and increased light.

Donations will be accepted for the Helen Day Art Center and Stowe Free Library’s recovery from a recent burst pipe, as well as HIAS –– Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society –– a refugee resettlement program in the U.S., an organization supported by the Tree of Life Synagogue and one of the reasons that congregation was attacked.

Presented by the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe, with our partners at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, the Helen Day Art Center, Stowe Performing Arts, and the Greater Stowe Interfaith Coalition, including St. John’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church, Stowe Community Church, Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stowe, and Bahá’ís of Stowe.  Special thanks to Stowe Media Group and the Stowe Reporter.
