Temple Sha'arey Shalom's first full-time Rabbi, Israel "Sy" Dresner, will serve as the Temple's special Shabbat speaker at 8 p.m. Friday. 

A lifetime civil rights activist, Dresner was one of the original Freedom Riders of the early 1960's. He worked and walked alongside the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to confront and oppose racism and segregation in the south, according to the Temple.

The title of Dresner's sermon will be "Shalom Is Not Only Desirable, It Is Possible."
