Shabbat Services

Friday, 6 p.m.: Kabbalat Shabbat services

Join our religious leader, Rabbi David Fainsilber, in the sweet, restoring presence of Shabbat. Musical, dynamic and participatory, these services will revive your neshama yeteira, that extra soul that we receive every Shabbat. If you are planning on coming, invite a friend! The more neshama, the better.

 

 

The Old Country Fiddler
Sunday, May 31, 3 p.m.

Adam Boyce, composer, living history presenter and fiddler, portrays musical humorist and fiddler Charles Ross Taggart (1871-1953), doing his favorite routine of Taggart's "The Old Country Fiddler at the Singing School." Don't miss this afternoon of Americana, old time music, and storytelling!

 

Rock Shabbat Service
Followed by an enhanced potluck dinner
Friday, June 5, 6 p.m.

Dahg is a group of members of Temple Sinai in South Burlington, Vermont who simply love to get together to make music. A "garage-style" band, we have performed for several Rock Shabbat services as well as other occasions both at temple and in the community. The idea behind the band and the Rock Shabbat is to offer a different type of spiritual experience in order to attract more to our Friday night worship. We combine classic rock with some of our more traditional liturgy played louder and faster than it probably ought to be. We've found that this mix appeals to all ages and creates an energy not often seen in traditional worship.

Be in touch with Sarah Ellner to make a potluck contribution at sellner78@hotmail.com.
