Violinist returns for a special Kabbalat Shabbat service

Congregation Beth Sholom of Leesburg invites the community to a very special warm, joyous, and festive Shabbat service on Friday, Aug. 11th at 7 p.m.

This uplifting service of music and song, led by Rabbi and Cantor Karen Allen, who will be playing her keyboard, features world-class violinist Zoriy Zinger.

Zinger was a soloist in the Russian Symphony Orchestra before reaching fame in America. Rabbi Allen and Zinger have collaborated in numerous venues, including three concerts at the Melon Patch Theater. 

The Kabbalat Shabbat takes the form of the usual Friday night service, enhanced with musical instruments and additional songs.

You won’t want to miss this wonderful celebration of the Jewish spirit in music from Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox traditions. You will leave humming or singing tunes that you learned as a child, along with versions of prayers that you may have heard for the first time. 

An Oneg Shabbat with refreshments will follow the service. 

The synagogue is located at 315 North 13th Street in Leesburg, with the entrance on Center Street. For more information see our website at www.bethsholomflorida.org or call 352-315-0309.
