Kabbalat Shabbat - Rise Up Singing Zmirot RSVP: rabbishwn@mishkan.org

Fri, 11/04/2022 - 7:00pm

We will start Singing Zemirot (Jewish Hymns).  Songbooks will be provided and Kaddish will be available as well.

The best known zemirot are those sung around the table during Shabbat and Jewish holidays. The words to many zemirot are taken from poems written by various rabbis and sages during the Middle Ages. Others are anonymous folk songs that have been passed down from generation to generation. The melodies vary greatly from one Jewish community to another, as local tunes and styles of music are adapted to the same liturgical poems. New tunes continue to be written today for the same ancient lyrics.
