Rabbi Shir Yaakov Feit

This Friday, January 9 and Saturday, January 10, Congregations Nevei Kodesh and Bonai Shalom will be co-sponsoring a Boulder visit by cutting edge mystical rabbi and musician, Shir Yaakov Feit.  He will be leading a Shabbaton entitled “Davvenology: The Secret of Mystic Prayer” followed by a Saturday evening concert.  R. Shir Yaakov will be joined by local  musicians Eyal and Danya Rivlin, Sheldon Sands, Sandra Wong, Steve Bross and Rabbi Sarah Bracha Gershuny.

Shir Ya’akov  is an aba, singer, composer, designer, producer and teacher. Whether as Romemu’s former Musical Director, an officiant at weddings and lifecycle events, or as one-half of the world-hop duo Darshan; in synagogues, yeshivas, and intentional communities around the world; and in Jewish, multi-faith, and non-affiliated spiritual contexts, Shir Yaakov weaves a tapestry of Kabbalistic wisdom, contemporary songwriting, and deep personal spirituality. He has recorded and released four albums of original music. As a spiritual leader, he has led services and ritual in a wide variety of contexts, from Hasidic yeshivas to multifaith, LGBTQ, and earth-based spiritual groups.  He was one of the leaders of the recent memorial for Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi last August at the Boulder Theater.

You won’t want to miss this special opportunity to deepen your prayer practice and hear a great contemporary Jewish musician! You can register for the entire weekend, just the Shabbaton or just the concert.  Early bird registration discounts end January 6.

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
