As in many towns, Andover holds an annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service. It is a yearly occasion to honor our differences and celebrate our many similarities, while giving thanks for the bounty we enjoy, the freedoms we cherish and the liberty we treasure.
This year’s service will be held on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 5 p.m. at Temple Emanuel, 7 Haggetts Pond Road, Andover. It will include clergy from many of Andover’s houses of worship joining in an inspiring liturgy of prayer and song.
This is a festive and joyous season. It is good to take a moment amid the frenzy of holiday preparations, sit side by side with our friends and neighbors and express our gratitude for the blessing of living in this remarkable corner of the world.
Rabbi Robert S. Goldstein is the spiritual leader of Temple Emanuel of Andover.
