Musical Summer Shabbat Services Friday Night

Congregation Bonai Shalom invites you to join Aron Friedman, Jackie Seltzer, Janine Starr and Rabbi Marc with guitar, mandolin, drums and voices as we strum, beat and sing our way into Shabbat this Friday night with soulful, summer musical Kabbalat Shabbat services. In addition to some old and new favorites, there will be a rendition of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach’s “Lord Get me High!”

The service starts promptly at 6:00 pm and the music will go through until the last verse of l’cha dodi, as it is our custom to put down our instruments before the end of Kabbalat Shabbat and finish the service A Capella in respect of traditional Shabbat observance.

We hope you will come and sing with us as we joyfully bring in this Shabbat!  Future musical services are on July 20 and August 17. if you are interested in playing along, contact Rabbi Marc, rabbi@bonaishalom.org.
