Because we cannot physically come together for shabbat we are offering new ways to engage with spiritual prayer.  Below is an invitation to connect with our Kol Shofar prayer service. This musical service is a pre-recorded video on YouTube (not a livestream), with no participants present (no minyan, therefore various prayers have been left out intentionally).  Please enjoy what speaks to you.
