Benefits the Crispus Attucks Community Center, a program of Community Action Partnership

Watch at your leisure from February 27th – March 3rd and join the Zoom discussion on March 4th at 7:00 pm to mark 251 years since the death of Crispus Attucks on March 5th, 1770. Crispus Attucks was the first person killed in the Boston Massacre and thus the first American killed in the American Revolution.

The Crispus Attucks Community Center, a program of the Community Action Partnership, strives to improve the quality of life for youth and families in Lancaster by providing services that promote community prosperity, physical and mental health; and by offering programs and cultural events which preserve the African American heritage. Crispus Attucks sponsors community-wide cultural events, including Lancaster’s Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast, Black History Month events, and the Juneteenth Celebration. The Center is also home base for the African American Veterans Project and the African American Historical Society.

Temple Beth El’s mission is to provide a house of Conservative Jewish worship that fosters spiritual fulfillment, Jewish theology, lifelong Jewish education, and community support throughout the cycles of the seasons. Temple Beth El is a member congregation of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), observing Traditional Judaism within the framework of modern living. Through religious services, religious school, and adult education, the congregation strives to develop a sense of family and community among members and to encourage growth and understanding of Jewish identity.
