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.

Special Der Freylekher Shabes in Honor of Cantor Beth Cohen!

Celebrate Cantor Beth Cohen's 25 years of loving and spirited leadership of Nahalat Shalom.

And of course, she created and continues to bring world class Klezmer music and musicians to our community and all of New Mexico during the annual KlezmerQuerque Festival. Come join us as we honor Cantor Beth during Der Freylekher Shabes in May! Bring a memory, a story, a song & your dancing shoes!
