Shira Be’shishi/שירה בששי (Singing on Friday) is a one of a kind Israeli-style Shabbat experience at Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn, made possible in part funding from the UJA Federation of NY.
Shira Be’shishi brings together people of all ages in a relevant, accessible, and vibrant musical way, infused with a unique approach of developing a Jewish community life that combines Jewish and Israeli identities.
Shira Be’shishi is all about a living relationship with Shabbat, through music and song, community, food, and tradition. It brings together people of all backgrounds who are seeking to reconnect spiritually, and find Shabbat’s meaning of peace and elevation, perhaps more needed than ever before in our ever-challenging and busy 21st century lives.
Our musical experience, led by a stellar team of NYC’s finest vocal and instrumental talent, is a vehicle for soulful communal singing. It includes niggunim (beautiful wordless melodies,) profound piyutim (liturgical poetry, set to melodies from across the Jewish diaspora) and modern Israeli and non-Israeli music.
The program’s unaffiliated nature makes it a welcoming place for people with secular and traditional backgrounds who are looking for new ways to explore the world of Jewish communal and spiritual life, free of any preconceptions or restraints.
Shira Be’shishi will take place once a month on Friday nights. It starts at 6:00pm with ritual, nigunim and piyutim followed by dinner and end with Shira Betzibur- sing along.
