I’m very excited to be working with Congregation Shaar Hashalom’s Sisterhood group on designing a unique and musical service for their upcoming Sisterhood Shabbat. We’ll be featuring songs and prayer melodies written by new and well known Jewish female artists. I will also be co-leading along with members of CSH’s Sisterhood as we welcome in the Sabbath bride with a joyful noise. It is going to be quite a night!
One of those new Jewish artists is a lady named Sarah Edelstein. We’ll be featuring her fantastic song, “El Na” in our service for our healing prayer and it has quickly become one of my favorites. The words,”Ana El Na Refa Na La”, are what Moses says when he asks Gd to heal Miriam. “Gd, please heal her, please.” Sarah’s song captures the intention of that prayer beautifully.
Take a listen to Sarah and if you are in the Houston area, please join us on July 17th for this very special Shabbat. To find out more about Congregation Shaar Hashalom, click HERE.
