Havdallah Meet-Ups

Saturday, January 7 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

Weaving community in the cold dark months, we are taking advantage of the skills and curiosities of Temple Israel community for a series of 6 Havdalah Meet-ups.

Melave Malke- Havdole Prayers and Sweet Yiddish Songs to Escort the Departing Sabbath Queen, with Yosl Kurland.

What is a Melave Malke? It’s Saturday evening. Shabbos is about to be over, but we don’t want our day of rest and joy to get away so quickly. So we escort it out with prayer, song, food and conversation to ease our re-entry into the workaday week.

Use this link to download the songbook: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5g2m0me27aqmgcn/Melave%20Malke%20Songsheet.pdf?dl=0 The songbook contains transliteration and translation of Yiddish songs and Hebrew prayers in Ashkenazic Hebrew pronunciation.

These events will be hybrid in person in the Social Hall and on Zoom unless otherwise noted. Contact the Temple Israel office for the Zoom link: office[at]templeisraelgreenfield.org. We’ll say havdalah, the blessings that end Shabbat, and engage in great conversations! Light refreshments and snacks provided.

Accessibility Information: This event will take place in the Social Hall which is wheelchair accessible and will be on Zoom. Tables and chairs will be set up.
