  • Shabbat Unplugged - Musical Service

    Shabbat Unplugged: Our monthly singing service

    A joyous, meditative, family-friendly evening of music and singing! The service is accompanied by a seven piece band featuring both congregant and professional musicians, and led by our very own Solomon Hoffman. This service will include everything from familiar congregational tunes to camp melodies, Chassidic niggunim to Sephardic chants, Joey Weisenberg to Israeli congregation Nava Tehila. We'll also introduce a new piece each month and teach it to the congregation. Appropriate for members of ALL ages (school families, teens, empty-nesters, seniors, etc) who love to sing!! Come join us in song and celebration on Friday night!

    Here’s a link to lots of the music we’ll be doing each month from congregations around the world:
