June Kabbalat Shabbat Satsang at Integral Yoga – Free and Open to the Public

Our ongoing, monthly, fully body-soul based Shabbat experiences in NYC. With Shoshana Jedwab, Renee Finkelstein, beloved musicians, and most of all with — YOU! The first two of these events were off the hook and totally different from any other Jew-ish event happening in NYC. And they were packed: So please register using the link above to guarantee your space. We are looking for volunteers to help us organize and make it happen! If you can help, please message Kirtan Rabbi.

While these Kirtan Shabbats are always free and open to all, please consider making a donation to make them sustainable. Either offer a donation at IYI’s registration, or by using this link:

This is a family friendly event. Babies and children always welcome!

**IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM IYI: Owing to Integral Yoga Institute’s policies, attendees must register with them using the link provided here. RSVP’ing to this Facebook event is NOT enough! (Though please do… ;). Also, no one will be able to get in after 8pm.**

Sat in Sanskrit means truth; sangha means kehilah, or community. Thanks to a new collaboration between Kirtan Rabbi and Integral Yoga—and with a number of prayer leaders—we are offering to the community a monthly, fully “off-book” Shabbat experience, filled with chanting, meditation, movement, reflection, and, of course, great music! We’ll light candles, make kiddush, break challah, and share our lives. People of all faiths are welcome. Owing to limitations of space, pre-registration is recommended. This event is free*.
