July 24 vaEthanan/Shabbat Nahamu/Tu beAv

Shabbat vaEthanan opens the season of nehamah, consolation.  This year it also corresponds with Tu beAv.  In modern Israel, the 15 of Av is considered a version of Valentine’s Day.  We will offer a blessing to couples and to everyone that has a birthday during July.

Member-Led Shabbat Morning Service
July 31, 2021 • 10:00 a.m.

Once a month in the coming year, beginning July 31, we’ll be holding a Shabbat morning service led by our talented and creative members—which includes YOU!


This is an opportunity for everyone to take an active role in shaping how we experience Shabbat. We welcome your vision and ideas!

A committee formed at our annual meeting, but we’d love to have more input from more members. Please contact SHN coordinator Janet at info@shirathanefesh.org if you’d like to take an active part in shaping our Shabbat observances!

A Warm Welcome from Our Clergy

Rabbi Gilah Langner

A place of learning, joy, and music. A place to find a connection to Judaism. A community of social justice seekers.  We welcome you to Shirat HaNefesh, a place to find the song of your own spiritual soul. We are open to seekers of all backgrounds and levels of interest.

We fill our services with beautiful music of both Ashkenazi and Sephardi traditions, and we consider no question too foolish or too deep to put to the rabbi. Bring your cup of coffee and your kids. Wherever you are on your Jewish path, come find a home at Shirat HaNefesh.

Rabbi Langner and Hazzan Tasat
