Musical Seudah Shlishit
The Third Shabbat Meal

Mattisyahu Brown, Rachel Ravitz

College/University Student Recommended, Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Shabbat, Social Justice

As Shabbat afternoon wanes, we enter one of the most spiritual times of the week. The last hours are the most holy, and we mark this taste of the world to come with singing contemplative Carlebach melodies, telling inspirational stories, and having a little nosh (small meal). Note: No amplification or musical instruments will be used in this session.

Mattisyahu Brown

Rachel & Matti

Mattisyahu Brown brings holy passion and harmony to orthodox services. He is an official Baal Tefillah of the Soho Synagogue, the IYYUN Center, and Bnai Avraham. A singer-songwriter, he explores the mystic depths of Shir haShirim (Song of Songs) and Tehillim (Psalms), and performs with his wife, Rachel Ravitz. His greatest joy is participatory singing, when all voices unite in praise of the One.
