Local clergy gathered at Temple Ner Tamind for the Annual Thanksgiving Week Service which rotates around the Houses of Worship of the Montclair Clergy. Some 80 people were in attendance and the Ramblers played traditional tunes of Thanksgiving.

The quote of the evening was “turn Thanksgiving into Thanksliving,” by Br. Getty Reyes, capturing the true spirit of alms to the poor and the disenfranchised.
