Shabbat Vayinafash: A Casual, Musical, Shabbat

February 9, 2024 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


Shabbat Vayinafash: A Casual, Musical Shabbat

Join us for a Shabbat filled with food, music, singing and community!  Gather round the tables for a potluck meal, casual shabbat singing and music as we let the ruach – joyful spirit – of Shabbat refill our hearts.  This Shabbat experience is different from “all other nights,” but will always include an opportunity to pray for healing and remember our loved ones with kaddish.  See you for Shabbat Vayinafash!

 Where does Shabbat Vayinafash come from?  Why does it sound familiar?
You might recognize this as the last line of “Veshamru”  (u’vayom ha’sh’vi’i shabbat vayinafash, https://www.sefaria.org/Exodus.31.16-17).  It references the 7 days of Biblical Creation, and recalls that the “work week” of creation ends as God ceases from work and draws a breath of rest and renewal.
