The struggle for justice, liberty and to be live as a creation of God were themes forefront in the annual interfaith observance of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday that the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue and First Presbyterian Church held last weekend. Even though the slain civil rights leader is honored once annually, the preachers here said that King’s fight is particularly at the forefront today. Two services, for Friday night Shabbat and Sunday morning worship, filled each sanctuary.
The Brooklyn Heights Synagogue and First Presbyterian Church have again this year joined forces for a weekend of musical interfaith services and pulpit exchange to commemorate the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on what would have been his birthday. Civil rights leader King, who was born on Jan. 15, 1929, was assassinated in Memphis on April 4, 1968, just after giving a speech.
Grace Church Brooklyn Heights, which was founded in 1847, has announced that the Rev. Dr. Allen F. Robinson will be its 15th rector — and first black rector in the parish’s 170-year history. The wardens of Grace Church, Vivian Toan and Kate Rock, made the announcement via email on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 7. Robinson comes to Brooklyn from St. James Church in Baltimore, where he has been rector since 2002. The parish, also known as St. James’ at Lafayette Square, is older than Grace Church.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
