Join Spiritual Leader Zvika Krieger, Musical Director Lior Tsarfaty, and special guest teacher Rebecca Schisler for a Shabbat morning Shacharit prayer service, including soulful singing, interactive Torah ritual as we start the Book of Bereishit/Genesis, and connection in community. We’ll be holding space to grieve the horrific violence in Israel-Palestine and send healing prayers to all who are suffering.

Event will start promptly at 10:30 am — please arrive 15 minutes early to check in.

After Services: Enjoy a delicious kiddush and schmooze with our community.

Once a consistent Jewish summer camp songleader, after some time away from that specific work, he’s excited to be back at it helping to bring song and prayer to the community. Darrow has played most often with his old time outfit, The Dawn Chorus String Band. He offers local music lessons as well as mentoring and nature programs through his current business, Doing Things With Darrow and is working on bringing crafts, music, and Jewish community-building through his project, Shtetl Skills.
