Shabbat Shirah with Cantor Yvon Shore

14 Jan @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Share a special musical evening with us on Friday, January 14 at 6 p.m. when we welcome Cantor Yvon F. Shore, Director of Liturgical Arts and Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, to give a sermon in song in celebration of Shabbat Shirah (Sabbath of Singing).

The service is named for a musical moment in Jewish biblical history when Moses and Miriam lead the Israelites across the Sea of Reeds and out of Egypt. Part of the reading is known as Shirat HaYam (song of the sea).
