Chanting is a way of tuning the soul. Guided by Alon Nashman, we’ll sit in song and silence to open our portals to the divine as we prolong the beauty of Shabbat in sacred community.
In keeping with Izhbitz hasidic custom, our seudah shelishit – third meal of Shabbat – will focus on feeding our souls rather than our bodies as the sun sets and the room darkens, before concluding with havdalah.
Alon Nashman is an actor and creator of theatre.
