Lunch & Learn: Israel: the Politics of Music or the Music of Politics
led by Rabbi Sam Levine
Saturday, February 4
following Shabbat services
This Saturday is Shabbat Shira – the Sabbath of Song. We read Parashat Beshalach which includes the parting of the Sea of Reeds and the song sung by the Israelites after they’ve crossed. It is an epochal moment in the story of Israel – the first step in their transition from the bondage of Egypt to liberty in Eretz Yisrael – the Land of Israel.
Following Shabbat morning services, join us for a dairy Lunch and Learn. The weather forecast predicts cold. Our solution is a warm meal and a songful teaching that will use two familiar songs to explore resonant themes in Israeli society. What a wonderful way to celebrate Shabbat Shira.
