Renewal Kabbalat Shabbat (Friday Evening Services)

Welcoming Shabbat

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Shabbat

Enter Shabbat with sweet song and silence. Traditional melodies meet uncannily familiar new ones. Breathe out the week, breathe in Shabbos. Note: There will be mixed gender seating and instruments will be used.

Friday Night Tisch!

A Table of Shabbos Singing and Storytelling

Shir Yaakov Feinstein-Feit, David Ingber, Eden Pearlstein, DovBer Pinson

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Shabbat

Tisch (Yiddish for table) is the Hasidic custom of gathering around a table to share songs, words, and drinks. Come with your whole self and be moved into the full Shabbat spirit as Eden Perlstein's prophetic rap dances with the Hasidic niggunim (songs without words) and teachings of Rav DovBer Pinson and mystical melodies of Shir Yaakov. Note: Alcohol will be available at the Tisch (only for participants who are 21 years of age and older).

Community-Wide Havdalah 2011

Shir Yaakov Feinstein-Feit, Jill Hammer, David Ingber, Shoshana Jedwab, Eden Pearlstein

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Shabbat

Warm your body and soul at this sweet and lively Havdalah (closing Shabbat) event. We will celebrate the community we have built together over this Shabbat and transition into the second half of Limmud NY, and a new week. Join Shir Yaakov and Eden Perlstein of Darshan along with Jill Hammer, Shoshana Jedweb and David Ingber for a havdalah ceremony filled with music, dancing and learning. This is not to be missed!

PaRDeS in Practice

Shir Yaakov Feinstein-Feit, Eden Pearlstein

Arts & Performance, Text & Thought

This is a golden oppurtunity to join an artist/musician/poet on a journey through the creative process. Hear from the artists themselves how a song is conceived and completed. Dive into the archetypal world of free-associative symbolic juxtapositions and textual references. We will deconstruct the lyrics and music of two of Darshan's songs and reveal what goes on behind the scenes of the creation.

Darshan Live in Concert

Shir Yaakov Feinstein-Feit, Eden Pearlstein

Arts & Performance

Darshan is the Musical Midrash Project of Singer/Songwriter Shir Yaakov and Radical Jewish Renaissance Rapper Eprhyme. Together these two juxtapose diverse sounds and styles as they creatively delve into Jewish Sources and Deep Spirituality. Darshan is astral rap, liturgical jazz, audio alchemy. Harmonizing Hebrew Chant with Hip Hop, this music is a unique blend of deep and probing rhymes with evocative and uplifting melodies, prayers, and niggunim. Come move and be moved.
