It was a supreme celebration.

The cast of “Motown the Musical” rolled into Maimonides Medical Center for a Black History Month performance on Feb. 9. The priest who gave an invocation before the singing and dancing praised the hospital — named for a Jewish thinker — for embracing multiple cultures.

“Maimonides was a great Jewish philosopher who respected the dignity of others,” the Rev. Eddie Alleyne, rector and dean of St. Luke’s Deanery. “The center does such a fantastic job every year in celebrating Black Heritage Month in such a cultural experience.”

Local justice of the court and lawyer Sylvia Hinds-Radix gave the keynote address.
