On October 3,Sim Shalom Online Synagogue founder Rabbi Blane, will offer a Rosh Hashanah Jazz service to an adventurous group of congregants looking for an innovative place to celebrate the Jewish New Year. “The beginning of the Jewish Calendar, is a fitting time to make beautiful noise,” according to Rabbi Blane. “The Torah prescribes us to sound of the shofar creating a joyful noise . Melding the vitality of the musical rhythms with traditional Jewish liturgy is a perfect way for us to reflect on the joy of the holiday and new beginnings.”
Welcoming and connecting Jews of all affiliations and backgrounds from around the world in joyful uplift is the core of Sim Shalom Jewish Universalist teachings. For those who will be in New York City, tickets are available for purchase for the live service which will be at the legendary venue,the Bitter End,in Greenwich Village.
