A Meditative-Musical Shabbat Experience

Elie Wiesel taught: “When we pray as a community, we are rescued from our loneliness — we are no longer alone. Our voices are not lost to the chaos of the world.”

Everyone is welcome to join Rabbi Cory Weiss, Cantor Rachael Littman, and Music Director Eleanor Ackerman Rice as we embark on a new kind of worship experience: KAVANAH SHABBAT as we will focus our hearts and souls on music that moves us as a worship community. We will go “deep” rather than “broad” by focusing on a handful of words and melodies, tapping into them in new ways that can affect us powerfully internally and externally, on an individual and group level.

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel taught that prayer should take us out of our heads and into our hearts. Kavanah Shabbat is designed to do just that: use music, chant, breathing and meditation to bring us to new levels.

Please join us for this new, experimental service. Come with an open mind and an open heart!
