Generation Aleph: Shabbat Fusion

Category :: Community
Once a month, approximately 75 young adults - single and attached, members and non-members - gather to experience a Shabbat evening of prayer, song and study like no other. Against the backdrop of our formal Sanctuary, intimacy is created by sitting informally in a circle around the lower bimah,.

The five musicians bring tribal rhythms from the Ugandan Jewish community, joyful niggunim from the Chassidic influence of Shlomo Carlebach, and riffs of New Orleans jazz and retro-funk. Everything old is new again with this eclectic mix of sounds that gets the crowd up and dancing to welcome in the Shabbat bride with the words of Lecha Dodi.

Instead of a sermon, the teachings are sprinkled throughout the Service, which highlight the themes and logic of the prayer book.

Following the service, a kiddush of good Israeli wine and sushi invites people to linger for hours.

All 20 and 30 somethings are welcome.
