This event has passed

Shabbat Shira, the Sabbath of Song, is celebrated on the Sabbath of the Torah portion B’shalach. We will rejoice with beautiful music and express our gratitude for the miracle that occurred when Moses and Miriam led the Israelites out of Egypt and across the Red Sea.

In this musically saturated service, we will offer our new instrumentalists and solo vocalists the opportunity to elevate our prayers through their extraordinary and interpretive musicianship. We will pull inspiration from the secular and the religious, the classical and the contemporary, the composed and the improvised, as we recall Miriam’s escape from Egypt with a timbrel in her hand, hope in her heart and a song on her lips.

This service is open to all members of our community, including our Religious School families and Saviv young professionals. A festive Oneg Shabbat will follow.

Following the service, Religious School families and teens are invited to a dinner
celebrating our Religious School faculty. Payments must be received before the event.
Early-bird pricing ends January 22. Make your dinner reservation »
