The Song of Songs Minyan comes together for a community Kabbalat Shabbat (Welcoming of the Sabbath) on the second Friday of every month. Shir HaShirim's egalitarian Jewish spiritual practice attracts people from multiple communities within the greater Bay Area and beyond. Uniting the musical liturgy of the Sephardic, Mizrachi and Ashkenazic Jewish traditions, these gatherings draw upon the deep wells of Jewish sacred music, poetry, dance and prayer from around the world, as well as from global wisdom culture and cutting-edge science. Shitr Hashirim is led by Rabbi Michael Ziegler ad Hazzan Ricjard Kaplan wit musical accompaniment by panoply of truly extraordinary Bay Area musicians and singers, and features the contributions of an array of marvelous poets.
