Chanting Kabbalat Shabbat

Chanting Kabbalat Shabbat

A Chanting Kabbalat Shabbat service one Friday evening a month (usually the fourth Friday) provides a contemplative way to greet Shabbat through sacred Hebrew chanting and meditation. Celebrate the end of your week, nourish your soul and welcome Shabbat. Join us as we move into holy space/time in a meditative mode: chanting sacred phrases and melodies and then melting into silence. No prior knowledge or special talent is necessary, only the willingness and intention to go inside yourself, to listen deeply and to be in community with others who are engaged in this practice. Led by Judy Brown and Sofie Shefia Stephanie Cohen.  We meet at 7:30pm in Bayt B'racha, the building on the north side of the courtyard.
