Don’t Miss the Last Musical Kabbalat Shabbat of the Summer
August 10, 2016
Holidays, Jewish Life
Friday, August 19th at 6:00 pm is Bonai Shalom’s final Musical Kabbalat Shabbat of the summer.
Live music will be played throughout Kabbalat Shabbat and then our ma’ariv service will be a cappella. Stay for a community potluck dinner after the service (vegetarian, nut-free, and labeled if possible). Bonai Shalom will provide homemade challah, grape juice, and some compostables. Feel free to bring your own food, drink, and plates!
May 19 was Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, which is beautiful and very complex for most of us. Inspired by the amazing line "am I not the violin of all of your songs" in Naomi Shemer's song Jerusalem of Gold, I wrote this poem.
Melanie Gruenwald is participating in the Courage Classic Bicycle Tour in July to raise money for Children's Hospital Colorado patients and families because I want to help Children's Colorado ensure healthier futures for kids.
