RMSS – Rock My Soul Shabbat

The Temple brings music and liturgy to the congregation in a powerful and meaningful Shabbat service.  This highly interactive, participatory event has lit the fire of young families, teens and grandparents alike.  No one can resist clapping their hands and dancing in the aisles as the energy level and the ruach of the Shabbat service hits its mark!

Rabbi Richard Block and Cantor Kathy Sebo lead a nine-piece band and the congregation in song and prayer for a one-hour service that carries a folksy vibe backed by a wailing clarinet and horns, keyboards, drums and guitars.

“The magic of this service is that the whole person is used in worship,” notes Rabbi Block.  “Music has such a powerful spiritual dimension and these special Shabbats allow our exuberant, talented musicians and congregation to put their heart and soul into the music without any restrictions.  Some parts of the service rock, but other more serious parts are contemplative and tranquil as traditional prayers and melodies are mixed in.”

The Temple sometimes has a dinner prior to the Rock My Soul Service for families and friends to gather before service.   Please check our calendar for the next Rock My Soul Service.
