Everything Sings: Discovering Our Unique Voice

February 7-9, 2020


This Shabbat is known as 'Shabbat Shira' or the Sabbath of Song.  We will explore the power of song to liberate ourselves from our narrow places and discover the unique voice through which each of us is called to express and embody the work of creating a more loving and compassionate world.
