St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring is formalizing its 10-year relationship with the Philipstown Reform Synagogue by unveiling a new sign that brings the congregations together.
On Saturday, Dec. 16, at 4 p.m., a ceremony celebrating the partnership will be followed by a Hanukkah meal in the Parish Hall, and on Sunday, Dec. 17, at 10:30 a.m., Father Shane Scott-Hamblen and Rabbi Helaine Ettinger-Bloom will lead a joint service. “The message here is one of diversity and that we are all entitled to a place of worship,” said Scott-Hamblen.
