(Sept. 15 & 16) — A Weekend of Music and Reflection.
A very special weekend with multi-instrumentalist musician, singer and composer Joey Weisenberg, who is Creative Director of Mechon Hadar's Center for Jewish Communal Music, and Deborah Sacks Mintz, singing communities consultant of Mechon Hadar's Rising Song Institute. 

FRIDAY
The events begin Friday Sept. 15 at 6:15 p.m. with an unforgettable evening of  Nigun (soulful songs) infused Shabbat Preparation co-lead by Joey and Deborah and at 6:45 p.m. a Kabbalat Shabbat co-lead by Joey and Deborah.

At 8 p.m., Shabbat Dinner will be served. (Cost: $18/adult; $10/child 3-13, ages 2 and under free. Please register by Sunday, Sept. 10.)

At 9 p.m., join us for Transformation of a Nigun based on Joey's extensive experience with Nigunim (wordless melodies), nusah, (prayer chant) and other musical styles. Joey and Deborah will teach us how to explore the soul of any melody. 

SATURDAY MORNING
At 9 a.m on Sept. 16, Joey and Deborah will co-lead unforgetable morning services infused with moving song and prayer. Joey will give the D'var Torah. Following Kiddush, the pair will lead a "Building Singing Communities" session where they will discuss strategies for bringing people together to make music a lasting and joy-filled force in shul and Jewish life. We will sing, discuss, and have time for Q&A.

SATURDAY EVENING
The weekend culminates Saturday evening at 8:15 p.m. for a nosh. Join Joey, Deborah, and special guests from the Hadar Ensemble for a deeply meaningful concert/kumzitz at 8:45 p.m. with a Musical Selichot service to follow.
