Shabbat Zimrah brings the mystical sounds of Arab Jewry to the TBZ sanctuary. Co-led by artist-in-residence Yoni Battat on the oud, this service will utilize traditional and original melodies to chant excerpts from Shir Hashirim and the psalms of Kabbalat Shabbat, followed by Ma’ariv (Reading Song of Songs is a Mizrahi Friday night tradition practiced year round—not just on Shabbat Shira!).
On Thursday night before each service, join Yoni in person or on Zoom (please call the office for the link: 617-566-8171) for Hazmanah L’Zimrah (Invitation to Song), where Yoni will teach these melodies and about the musical traditions that they come from.
Yoni Avi Battat is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and composer, playing violin, viola, and oud in collaborative and interdisciplinary projects that explore both Mizrahi and Ashkenazi Jewish expression. Yoni’s music has been described as “an education for the ear and the soul,” inviting listeners to find healing, meaning, and joy in the experience of being human.+ More... - Less...
