Renowned violinist returns for Kabbalat Shabbat service


Zoriy Zinger

Congregation Beth Sholom of Leesburg invites the community to a very special warm, joyous, and festive Shabbat service on Friday, Aug. 10 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 several concerts. 

Beth Sholom's Kabbalat Shabbat takes the form of the usual Friday night service, enhanced with musical instruments and additional songs.

This will be a wonderful celebration of the Jewish spirit in music from Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox traditions, inspiring congregants to leave humming or singing tunes learned as a child, along with new versions of prayers. 

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.
