A Musical Shabbat: Bonai Welcomes Members

title[1]

Every people has its own melody . . . but Israel sings all of them, in order to bring them all to G-d.” – Abraham Yaakov

What is Jewish music?

A cursory search reveals that the variety of music used for worship and celebration is as wide as the Diaspora, as old as the First Temple, and is newly minted each Shabbat. It’s created by men, women, children; it’s sung a cappella, blared electronically, or quietly chanted.

Bonai ShalomBoulder County’s Conservative shul Bonai Shalom will host a Musical Shabbat and Welcome to Bonai dinner for prospective members on Friday, August 23 at 6:00 pm. In keeping with the region’s acoustic traditions, Rabbi Marc Soloway and ensemble join together guitar, mandolin, drum, and voices in praise, creating a dynamic and inclusive ritual that warms the hearts of its participants. (It is Bonai’s custom for the musicians to put down their instruments before the end of Kabbalat Shabbat and finish the service a cappella in respect of tradition.)

Current Bonai members will attend this special event as well, in order to give visiting prospective members a true sense of this unique spiritual community.

After services, please join the congregation for dinner! Dinner is free, but if you wish to attend please RSVP to the Bonai office at 303-442-6605.
