The Song of Songs Minyan comes together for a community Kabbalat Shabbat (welcoming of the Sabbath) on the second Friday of the 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. Rabbi Michael Ziegler and Hazzan Richard Kaplan lead services, with musical accompaniment by John Erlich (oud), Jano Bogg (percussion) and guests.
