8:30 p.m. Rising Song Nigun Circle
Elevate the oneg (delight) of Shabbat through the depths and joys of communal song. Through the meditative power of the nigun–wordless melody–we’ll raise our voices, lift our spirits, and encounter the harmonies sourced deep within us all.

9:15 a.m.Shaharit Service in the Sanctuary and on Zoom
Noon Kiddush
12:45 p.m. – Workshop: Singing at the Sea, Lamenting by the River: Song Narratives in Tanakh
How has music expressed both power and joy, and suffering and loss, throughout the Jewish people’s narrative? Where do we see our own experiences embedded within these stories? In this workshop, we’ll explore two key Biblical narratives centering the outpouring of song – punctuating our own learning with moments of melody and mindfulness.
