Motzei Shabbat, August 26, 2017
To Jewish folks in the Seattle area,
Please consider inviting us to your home for Shabbat! I know this sounds hutzpidik (audacious), but we really would like to team up with you to create a wonderful experience of Sabbath joy and to share with you the beautiful practice of Shabbat hospitality
We do something unique. We team up with hosts all around Seattle to foster an authentic experience of Sabbath joy through home hospitality, music and song, and rich stimulating conversation. We do this through our
Heart of Shabbat Ensemble
, a small ensemble of gifted musicians and me, a rabbi (I sing too) that share from the breadth of the Jewish songbook.
Our ensemble comes to the homes of our hosts. Hosts invite their circle of family and friends along with some new faces (hence our name). Together we gather around a meal for great singing, illuminating teachings, and rich conversation for an unforgettable experience of Sabbath joy.
Whether you are an experienced Shabbat host or someone who has never hosted, we believe that this experience will be precious and inspiring to you and your guests. And, of course, it's a mitzvah!
We do not charge hosts to host because we want to show how wonderful it is to practice the ancient Jewish traditions of hospitality.
During these troubled times, we cannot think of anything more important than to bring folks together and raise our spirits, and renew our souls to make the world a better place.
All the information you need to learn about how
