Beginning in 2014, the CBS community has gathered on the third Friday of each month to welcomeÂ ShabbatÂ with uplifting song. This spiritedÂ 3rd Friday Musical Kabbalat ShabbatÂ service has grown in popularity over the past two years, providing its many participants with a transformative experience that is as moving as it is joyful.This year, we've introducedÂ Fusion Friday Kabbalat Shabbat, an exciting new iteration of ourÂ 3rd FridayÂ series!Â Led byÂ Rabbi Aubrey Glazer, theÂ Shir Hashirim EnsembleÂ â€“Â HazzanÂ Richard Kaplan, violinistÂ Lila Sklar, andÂ Sheldon BrownÂ (on clarinet, flute, saxophone, and bass clarinet) â€“ will provide participants with an exquisite Friday night service featuring Jewish sacred music from around the world and drawn fromÂ Sephardic,Â Ashkenazic, andÂ MizrachiÂ traditions. EachÂ Fusion Friday Kabbalat ShabbatÂ will incorporate contemplative prayer, a Jewish/Turkish/SufiÂ zikr,Â klezmerÂ andÂ jazzÂ accents, and beautifulÂ Zoharic teachingsÂ and meditations by our own Rabbi Glazer. The prayer leaders, music, spirit, and ideas of theÂ Fusion Friday Kabbalat ShabbatÂ series make the vital passage between the rest of the week and Shabbat the extraordinary experience that it should be!
