Saturday, June 14th at 10:00 AM in Brentwood
(at the Village Lutheran Church, 343 Church Lane, L.A. 90049)
Ahavat Torah announces an innovative musical mash-up of contemporary songs with traditional Hebrew prayers in their:
Prayer + Pop Shabbat filmed by the West Side Today Newspaper
In the Prayer + Pop Shabbat the soulful music and lyrics of JAMES TAYLOR, PAUL SIMON, MOTOWN and THE BEATLES, will be performed as a means of spiritually transporting the congregation into the depths of our Hebrew prayers. Rabbis often explain the “kavanah” (intentionality) of each prayer to a congregation before chanting it. The Prayer + Pop Shabbat will use pop songs as unique “kavanot”, to put the congregation in the proper mindset to embrace the prayer that follows it.
The vocalists for this musical service will be Ahavat Torah’s Cantorial soloists Kimberly Haynes and Gary Levine. Musical accompaniment will be provided by Joel Warren and Eli Shirim Lester.
Ahavat Torah is small, spirited and welcoming congregation on the Westside led by Rabbi Miriam Hamrell. For more information visit our website: www.ahavattorahla.org
This special service is supported, in part, with funds from the Jewish Federation, and is open, free of charge, to all.
All faiths are welcome.
