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.
