Rabbi-Ariel-J.D.-Kleinke-300x225

J.D. Kleinke, author and musician, provides instrumental accompaniment for services at Congregation Shir Tikvah. Rabbi Ariel Stone, author of Because All is One, has served Shir Tikvah since 2001. Tasha Danner, actor, musician, yoga therapist and yoga teacher, has led kirtans for 8 years. Timothy Crespi, a Naropa-trained psychotherapist, studied kirtan and traditional Indian drumming while living and traveling in India.

Join us for a Jewish kirtan, an all-kosher adaptation of the ancient Hindu practice of sacred communal singing. Kirtan is a call-and-response form of devotional music, native to India but now popular around the world in many blends – and an important part of traditional yogic practice. The creation of sacred community through breath, voice, music and, often, spontaneous dance, kirtan singing also invokes the communal meditational spirit that is at the heart of most Jewish prayer services.

OM Shalom is highly participatory – so come prepared to sing!
