Joshua Nelson and the Kosher Gospel Singers

Friday Night Service

Joshua Nelson

Friday 4:30 PM–5:45 PM Manhattan Theater

Children & Families, Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Shabbat

Bring in Shabbat with Joshua Nelson and the Kosher Gospel Singers. Kosher gospel is the marriage of Jewish religious lyrics and meanings with the soulful sounds of American gospel music. Cultural traditions typically change slowly, over the long arc of history. But occasionally a folk cultural innovation emerges that is startlingly fresh in its outward manifestation, although it remains deeply—even reverently—traditional at its core. You may have never heard of “kosher gospel” music before today, but the inspirational performances of Joshua Nelson, the creator of this style, will call out to your soul. Note: Amplification and musical instruments will be used in this service. There will be mixed-gender seating.
