Convivencia!  Learning to Live Together

Shirat HaNefesh Celebrates Our 13th Anniversary in 2020-2021

Join us for any of our special events this Bar/Bat Mitzvah year since Shirat HaNefesh was founded by Rabbi Gerry Serotta and Hazzan Ramon Tasat in 2007.  Our theme is Convivencia! — a term that has been applied to the era in Spain when Jews, Muslims, and Christians lived together in relatively peaceful coexistence.  All the more do we need to affirm this tradition in the modern world.
