A Taste of
SHABBAT, SHIRAH & HAVDALAH
 
SATURDAY, MAY 21 at 7:00 pm ET
on Zoom
 
Cantorial Spiritual Leader
Andrew Susman
 



You won't want to miss this special program!

We welcome one and all to this special time with Andy, filled with music and love. Havdalah is a very beautiful and spiritual tradition, during which we use all of our senses:
  • to smell the sweet spices
  • to see the flame
  • to feel the heat and hear the crackling fire of the Havdalah candle
  • to taste the sweetness of the wine
We combine some of the best of Shabbat through prayer, word, and melody - concluding with Havdalah, a service "separating" & elevating the holy day of rest from the rest of the week. We bid farewell to our Sabbath Queen and long for her return once again next Friday!
 
Join together with Andy and L'Dor Va-Dor to enjoy a real Sabbath treat, musically and inspiritionally!

We had another nice Shabbat this past Friday evening, May 6th at The Mariposa with Rabbi Barry and Cantor Carol! The Mariposa will decide on whether we can continue there based on comments and feedback. It is a very convenient location for most of our congregants and friends. Thank you for being a part of our celebrations of Shabbat. We apologize for the issues encountered for Zoom last Friday evening. There was a hiccup with the Zoom registration link; we will be more careful for future programs.

Wishing all Happy Mother's Day, a good day, a good week, and a great month. We send out wishes of love and shalom for those in need of an uplift. May all be healthy and remain safe. Live your life with kindness, love, and peace.

With Shalom,
