SholomPlex offers a morning of traditional Shabbat services and alternative ways of spending Shabbat together. Our November program has soulful singing with cantorial intern Jessica Woolf.
Join Jessica for an extra-musical Shabbat Shacharit service. Participants will be provided with a song sheet and sit in the round in order to create a circle of sound. We we will use simple melodies to illuminate certain passages of the Shabbat liturgy; sometimes we’ll sing one sentence over and over, other times it will be one word.
The service will feature music from contemporary Jewish musicians, including but not limited to Nava Tehila, Joey Weisenberg and the Hadar Ensemble. Acoustic string and percussive instruments will be played.
Bring your yoga mats and comfortable clothing too. We’re excited to have the Rev. Debbie Clark, a certified yoga instructor, leading you in yoga and Jewish spiritual and ethical principals to deepen your connection to prayer. She will be joined by Rosanne Kates and Larry Yarmaloff.

Taste of Jewish History
When the Holocaust Came to America: The Fort Ontario Story led by Norman Finkelstein
In 1944, at the height of World War II, nearly 1,000 Jewish refugees found a temporary haven at Fort Ontario in Oswego, New York. Fleeing one step ahead of Nazi pursuers, these lucky refugees found safety on the shores of Lake Ontario. How did they get here? How did they overcome the strict American immigration rules? What influenced President Roosevelt to let them in? What was their life like in Oswego?
Together, we will look at primary source materials to help us understand this “too little, too late” effort to save Jews during the Holocaust.
