Italian Jewish Melodies
This Shabbat we celebrate a very special moment in the Torah, a very musical moment in Jewish biblical history. This Shabbat is Shabbat Shirah where we read the Song of the Sea. Many congregations highlight this Shabbat by creating services with extraordinary music to celebrate Moses and Miriam leading the Israelites across the Sea of Reeds (The Red Sea) and out of Egypt.
Join us for a fabulous musical Shabbat morning service where we’ll learn and explore the rich history and different musical traditions of the Italian Jews. We’ll hear melodies from the Jewish communities of Mantua, Casale Monferrato, Rome, Florence and Livorno.
Cantor Elias Rosemberg will lead us together with Kol Emanuel, Zamira, Guys in Ties, Polkadots and Kol Keff under the direction of Eugenia Gerstein with Jeremiah Klarman, artist in residence in Keyboard and Elaine Baker D’Angelo in flute.
Our service is followed by a festive Kiddush.
