Klezmer Kabbalat Shabbat Service

Friday, Mar 29th 8:00p to 10:00pThe Klezmer Shabbat Service was created by Amy Lieberman and Cantor Becky Khitrik in 2014 as an outgrowth of their love of Klezmer music. “Since Klezmer is primarily an instrumental genre and we love to sing, we were all interested in creating a Kabbalat Shabbat service that was built on the Kabbalat Shabbat liturgy, but for choir and congregational voices, using the melodies of the Klezmer world and a Klezmer band to accompany our singing.” The result of that work was the Klezmer Kabbalat Shabbat Service. They have brought this service to communities across the Boston area, finding ways to integrate it with the community’s context. This service is an opportunity to experience the flow of the Shabbat music in a truly unique way. All are invited!
