Congregation Dorshei Emet in Hampstead will be hosting a wonderful event on Friday April 3 with a Kabbalat Shabbat evening called Musical Inspirations. which will be led by two of members Olga Gross and Deborah Kraus. The former is a harpist and pianist with the MSO and Ottawa Symphony; the latter, an opera singer.
“What better way to welcome the arrival of Shabbat than an evening of song?” asks Ms. Gross. “We will present musical arrangements of the Shabbat liturgy to transition us from the bustle of the week to a place of contemplation and renewal.
There will be a potluck dinner afterwards. Participants should bring a vegetarian or dairy dish. They can also call the office for more information 514-486-9400 and RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
