OM Shalom – A Jewish Kirtan! Sunday, April 6, 3 pm, at the Oregon Jewish Museum

Come together with Rabbi Ariel and J.D. Kleinke for a Jewish kirtan, an all-kosher adaptation of the ancient Hindu practice of sacred communal singing.  Kirtan is a call-and-response form of devotional music, native to India but now popular around the world in many blends – and an important part of traditional yogic practice.  The creation of sacred community through breath, voice, music and, often, spontaneous dance, kirtan singing also invokes the communal meditational spirit that is at the heart of most Jewish prayer services.  OM Shalom will include a collection of songs created or adapted for Jewish kirtans in Portland yoga studios and an occasional Shabbat service at our shul. OM Shalom will be highly participatory – so come prepared to sing!

Bring your pillow for comfy floor seating! Chairs will also be available.
