Let’s get ready for Hanukah which starts on Tuesday evening, December 12th.  Panim Hadashot-New Faces holds a Hanukah celebration on Friday, December 15th with a unique Hanukah Seder, Shabbat meal, and our signature Shabbat Musical Table.  Our Hanuakah Seder will feature live music from the Heart of Shabbat Ensemble. The seder is in 8 brief parts, each featuring a combination of bread and olive oil blends and one illuminating text about the holiday. We will have child care and will once again offer a bountiful Shabbatluck.  Here are the Links: Shabbatluck RSVP. Childcare RSVP
We are busy planning for a great 2018 year.  I am planning on introducing some new hosting formats for our Shabbat Hospitality Program which will enable you to choose from more than 3 options including a “Shabbat Salon” format to a family Shabbat concert.  Stay tuned.
Another plan in the works is a musical Shabbat morning service following the success of our High Holiday musical services which blended traditional prayer leading with live music and participatory singing that enhanced the liturgy.
We will also be offering a new singing circle in collaboration with the Stroum Jewish Community Center starting in mid January and a collaboration with Moishe House.
 
There are two events outside Panim Hadashot that I strongly recommend you to consider.  The first is coming up very soon, but if you have the time and funds to go to the Community Singing Intensive with Joey Weisenberg, I cannot recommend it more enthusiastically. I will be going again.  It is a life changing four days of Jewish community singing led by a brilliant composer and teacher.  It has the qualities of a spiritual retreat, an inspiring religious service, and a mesmerizing singalong.
 
The other event is our first Limmud Seattle taking place on January 13-14th 2018.  This will be a wonderful opportunity to participate in unique Jewish learning experience with dozens of great teachers and the participation of people from all over the Jewish community.  I will be among the teachers participating.  Please join me and support this wonderful initiative.
 
Lastly, I hope you will support Panim Hadashot-New Faces  with a year end gift or an annual subscription. As you can see above, we are growing and thriving.  We want you to be a part of it!
Happy Hanukkah,
Rabbi Dov Gartenberg, Convener and Director
