JOIN ME ON ZOOM FRIDAY NIGHT FOR A KABBALAT SHABBAT SERVICE. Zoom Link + Shalom

For those who had the pleasure of being with Faryn Borella Friday night, she taught about the difference between Kabbalat Shabbat and Ma’ariv. Kabbalat Shabbat is the welcoming of Shabbat, and Ma’ariv is the evening service which begins with the prayer the Barchu as we call to each other to go deeper into prayer.

When we are on zoom, I find it wise to focus on Kabbalat Shabbat. This Friday I will lead us on zoom as we take a deep dive of Kabbalat Shabbat. We will still get the familiar candlelighting, Shalom Aleichem, Yedid Nefesh, L’cha dodi, healing blessing, Kaddish, but we will also add a few more songs that arise from the delicious psalms we often skip. If you have one of our siddurim, have it ready (I will be posting words in the chat). Have candles to light and wine/juice to drink in Shabbat.

If you have a challah or bread, bring that too! After services, we can linger together and share some of our oys and joys….

I look forward to seeing all of you who can come.
