This coming Friday, June 5, is the first Friday of June, when we would normally hold our Kabbalat Shabbat service at the Y. However, there is a very special Shabbat service being offered by Mile End Chavurah, with my holy colleague and davvening leader extraordinaire Shir Yaakov Feit. We have been singing many of Shir Yaakov’s original melodies in our own Friday night davvening.
Check out his website: http://shiryaakov.com/about/.
And then listen to his extraordinary music: http://shiryaakov.com/albums/.
I decided to not have a Friday night service this week because I understand there are many of you who are intending to attend Shir Yaakov’s service. It’s in Outremont Park (unless it rains) and there is a potluck meal following the service. The details are below.
You will have to register at firstname.lastname@example.org to get additional information, such as the rain location.
When you send your registration email, use the following in your subject line: “I – YOUR NAME – will be coming to Shabbat in the Park on Friday night. Please send me details.”
I will be attending and I hope to see many of you there!
