Kirtan Rabbi in concert at Adas Israel this Saturday!

Bring your voices, open hearts and dancing socks to Kirtan Rabbi’s signature event: A full-band, fully-participatory Hebrew Kirtan concert.

Free and open to the public. Children welcome. Registration highly recommended:

This Saturday evening! Believe it or not, Kirtan Rabbi’s first full-on Kirtan in Washington, D.C. On Lag baOmer: A full-band Kirtan including: KR, vocals, harmonium, guitar; Rabbi Elyssa Auster, vocals; Gantt Mann Kushner, guitar; Allan Yellowitz, percussion; Pepe Gonzalez, bass. And most of all, featuring… YOU!

Here is Adas’ own invitation to the concert:
Join us for a deep, fully participatory, call-and-response musical experience! Live Kirtan is at once ecstatic, contemplative and, most of all, playfully improvised. Find your Kavanah (spiritual intention) with an evening of group chant that elevates the spirit, builds community, and actualizes interconnectedness. Cultivate a taste for Kirtan in a relaxed, welcoming environment, led by Rabbi Andrew Hahn, the “Kirtan Rabbi.” Rabbi Hahn has pioneered Kirtan in the Jewish world, criss-crossing the globe to offer communal call-and-response chant concerts and meditation seminars. In his workshops, he seamlessly combines chant, movement, meditation and text study into a positive, holistic experience. Includes Havdalah.

This is part of a larger series of weekend events. For the full schedule:
