Shabbat @ Home
Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, is a 25-hour period of rest lasting from just before sunset on Friday evening until nightfall on Saturday. The idea is to take a break from ordinary life, and focus on family, community, and spiritual growth. While there is no Kabbalat Shabbat service or program tonight, we do encourage you to create your own Shabbat at home experience. Look on our website for links to Shabbat rituals: https://www.beth-david.org/shabbat-rituals/ and feel free to contact us as we move forward with planning for the Fall.

Walking Through the Prayerbook Led by Chuck Taubman
A weekly, casual, unscripted class where we study well-known prayers from the Siddur, learn their meanings, and decipher their pronunciation. We also examine the customs of the prayer: e.g. how to stand, when to bow, and the “etiquette” of vocalizing. Stress-free discussions will help you develop confidence in reading, singing and understanding the core prayers in our liturgy, leading to a more fulfilling service-attending experience. The “textbook” is Siddur Sim Shalom and no homework will be required.

The Pianist of Willesden Lane – Theatreworks
Holding fast to dreams of concert success, a young Jewish pianist escapes Vienna via the Kindertransport, arriving in England at the outset of World War II. In a stunning, nationally-acclaimed performance, concert pianist Mona Golabek recounts her mother’s poignant saga of hope and resilience, underscored with extraordinary music from Bach, Beethoven, and many more. Created by TheatreWorks favorite Hershey Felder, it celebrates the power of music to transcend even the darkest of times.
Please RSVP by emailing Hazak by January 14th.
