Shir L’Shabbat services begin

Ohev Sholom's monthly musical Shabbat services

The first of our six monthly musical Shabbat morning services took place Saturday morning, December 9th. Services started at 10:00 a.m. We also enjoyed coffee and a light breakfast in Asner Hall at 9:30 a.m.

We three service leaders – Anna Jaffe, Linda Salvay and yours truly – prepared a worship experience blending traditional and contemporary elements. To this blended service we have given the name, “Shir L’Shabbat,” which has multiple nuances, the two most primary being “Song of Shabbat” and “Song for Shabbat.” We believe the name captures the principal aim of the experience, which is to take the inspirational experience of Shabbat worship up a notch through song. See you then!

Below are sample mp files of some of the music.
