Shirat Hanefesh In Action


 

Shabbat Morning Services 

Shirat HaNefesh holds Shabbat morning services every week, led either by Hazzan Ramón Tasat, guest clergy, or lay members of the congregation.  Often, we expand the Torah service into a one-hour study session.


Kolot HaLev

Several times a year we are enriched with the singing of Kolot HaLev, our resident choir under the direction of Hazzan Ramón Tasat. From holidays to Havdalah, Kolot HaLev lifts the heart and voice of our community.


Book Discussion 

If you love to read and talk about books, you’re in good company. Our Book Discussions take place about every two months on a Sunday morning at a member’s home or on Zoom. Click the link above for the 2021-2022 schedule.


 

Cemetery 

Shirat HaNefesh has a cemetery section at Garden of Remembrance available for members’ needs.  Our clergy and our Chesed and Bereave-ment Committee can help with planning and shiva.  Please consult our guidance document, When Someone Dies , and contact us for help and comfort, at info@shirathanefesh.org 


Wise Aging

Several groups of members have been meeting to explore the aging process and how to grow old with wisdom, joy, and patience. Please contact us at info@shirathanefesh.org if you are interested in starting a new group.

 


Lots More...

There’s lots going on at Shirat HaNefesh!  Shabbat, our annual Chanukah party, Purim Shpiel, Passover Mimouna, Shavuot Tikkun, and musical and meaningful High Holiday services.  Explore our website, get on our mailing list, and talk to our clergy about how Shirat HaNefesh can enrich your life.
