"It turns out this Rabbi Friend- who epitomizes the concept of social justice, is well known to some members of the All Souls Congregation. Intrigued? Please join us for an inspiring true story, and a service filled with uplifting South African freedom songs, led by our special guests, The Noonday Singers."

Jim Levinson served for 25 years as a Spiritual Leader of Jewish congregations in Athol, MA. and Brattleboro, VT.  The latter was nationally recognized for its efforts to facilitate Muslim-Jewish understanding through the Salaam-Shalom Program.  Jim is a founding member of the Brattleboro Area Interfaith Initiative, and the founder of Compassionate Brattleboro- in conjunction with the International Charter for Compassion.  A faculty member at MIT, Tufts University, and the SIT Graduate Institute, in his off hours Jim's passionate about, and for the past 50 years actively involved in, fostering international development in Asia and Africa - especially his son Noah's philanthropic organization - Calcutta Kids.  (In his free time, his current project is playing through the complete keyboard music of Bach!)

The Noonday Singers have their roots in Noonday Farm - a spiritually-based, interfaith community, which in the 1980s and 90s grew food for homeless persons in Massachusetts.  They also worshiped together, did anti-nuclear and non-violent resistance.  To protest apartheid, they and their sister community in Soweto, sang South African freedom songs, and had the privilege of singing several for Nelson Mandela in his visit to Boston.
