Shabbat Honoring the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Friday, January 14, 2022 12 Sh'vat 5782

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Welcome Shabbat through our special Shabbat worship incorporating readings and prayers that reflect the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

We are honored to welcome Dr. Ruben Anthony, CEO of Urban League of Greater Madison, to present by video about an exciting new project: the Black Business Hub and Black Business Accelerator, cornerstones of the exciting renaissance happening in South Madison. 

South Madison has long been home to our communities of color—African American, Latino, Hmong—and is a cherished place of community and support, but sadly, as a city, we have also long underinvested in this area. That story is now changing, thanks to the leadership of people like Dr. Ruben Anthony, Kaleem Caire (One City Schools), Dr. Alex Gee (Nehemia, Fountain of Life Church, and the new Cultural Center), Dr. Jack Daniels (Madison College), and others.

Dr. Anthony has been the president and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Madison since March 2015. During his time with the organization, the Urban League of Greater Madison has increased their job placements by 39%, and they have made over 1,400 placements to date. Over the past 30 years, he has been a senior manager in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. He is a subject matter expert in developing job placement strategies and in minority business development. In 2017, he was awarded the Golden Champion Award by the National Association of Minority Contractors Wisconsin Chapter, for leadership in minority business development in the Wisconsin construction industry.
