Rabbi Marc Soloway

With so much pain and tragedy in the world, it is still so important to find time to express gratitude for the many gifts.  If you are here in Boulder, why not start your Thanksgiving with a musical shacharit (morning service) experience led by two rabbis from London who don’t really know what Thanksgiving is?!

Rav Sarah Bracha from Nevei Kodesh and Rabbi Marc from Bonai Shalom will co-lead a festive davenen, including songs from Hallel, meditations on gratitude and a tribute to our teacher Reb Zalman.  This prayer service will combine traditional and creative elements and include a short Torah reading.  Thursday November 27th, 8:30 am  at Congregation Bonai Shalom.
