                           Yakar Kabbalat Shabbat - THIS SHABBAT!

About a month ago we experimented with a more spirited Kabbalat Shabbat and the shul has never been more full on a Friday night. Many more women and kids joined the singing and dancing. It was uplifting for everyone who participated. We will enjoy Yakar Kabbalat Shabbat this week, January 27th, Parshat Vaera, with Mincha beginning at 4:35pm.


What is a "Yakar Kabbalat Shabbat?"

Yakar is a center in Yerushalayim, known for their beautiful, slow and harmonic singing during Kabbalat Shabbat. Most of the tunes are "Carlbach" with a few others mixed in as well.


Why should I join you?

It is still cold and dark outside and we need to create some warmth and light by coming together and singing together.


What should I expect?

Rabbi Cheses will be leading this with a few people helping with some harmonies on the side. Davening will start at 4:35pm in the main sanctuary and will be about 10-15 longer than usual.

We are so fortunate to have such an active membership here at Young Israel. Many people shop for various programs, and a lot of our teens help in the kitchen and in groups. People are reimbursed weekly for expenses and teens are compensated monthly. Too many are not cashing their checks! Please cash Young Israel checks as soon as you receive them, so that we do not have to issue replacements. That being said, in the next 2 weeks, we will be reissuing checks to those who have not cashed their checks from 2013, 2014 and 2015. Check your drawers and piles at home for uncashed checks. Should you find any from 2013-2015, please return them to me. Any from 2016, please cash them! Any questions, please email Sandy at sandy@yisharon.org. Thank you!
