Sunshine Shabbaton with

Rabbi David Ingber

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.

Rabbi David Ingber of NYC’s Romemu will lead this 3-day retreat along with IJKL’s Rabbi Akiva Mann, Rabbi David Paskin, and Cantorial Soloist Laura Lenes. The weekend of events will include text study with Rabbi Ingber at B’nai Torah Congregation in Boca and the Dr. Abraham J. Gittleson Day of Learning, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Broward County.
