A ladder stood on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven (Genesis 28:12)
This is prayer. (Zohar)
Please check our online calendar for the Friday night schedule as we resume a mixture of online and in-person gatherings.
Our Friday night services feature global Jewish music, plenty of ruach/spirit, soulful davening, and occasional dancing in the aisles! Led by Hazzan Ramón Tasat, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., followed by an Oneg Shabbat (light refreshments). We have also held potluck dinners — “Shabbat in Our Homes” once a month. If you are interested in helping to organize Friday night Shabbat celebrations, please contact email@example.com.
Our Shabbat services are intimate and filled with uplifting music and spiritual inspiration.
We meet each Shabbat for davening, meditation, Torah reading, and discussion. We start at 9:30, finish at noon, and enjoy a light kiddush until 12:30 p.m. Members of the congregation are encouraged to read Torah, chant a Haftorah, or give a reflection on the Torah reading. B’nei Mitzvah students are invited to lead a prayer or two in the service. Occasional “After Kiddush” sessions feature members of Shirat HaNefesh who include rabbis and educators, on topics of their choosing.
Shabbat morning services in 2021-22 will be a mixture of Zoom and in-person services. Two services a month will be led by Hazzan Tasat, one service will be lay-led by Shirat HaNefesh’s experienced volunteers, and one service will be led by guest clergy. Please check our calendar and home page for the schedule.
Shirat HaNefesh is blessed with many varied, talented, and motivated members who contribute to make the Days of Awe meaningful.
