This Musical Shabbat Table is a collaboration between the Stroum Jewish Community Center and Panim Hadashot.  The Musical Shabbat Table is led by Panim Hadashot-New Faces’ Heart of Shabbat Ensemble devoted to bringing the joy of Shabbat through music, song, and Torah.   In between singing and conversation we will enjoy a “Shabbatluck” feast in which we all contribute dairy, vegan, or fish dishes. This will be a family friendly event with childcare provided.

Because Purim is coming, we will devote some time to Purim songs and a bit of Freilich (funny stuff).  

This is a unique Shabbat experience.  You will enjoy whether you are culturally or religiously oriented.  If you are in the mood for a spiritual, enlivening, joyful, engaging, and memorable Shabbat experience, you will not want to miss the Musical Shabbat Table.

Musical Shabbat Table

Panim Hadashot-New Faces’ Musical Shabbat Table is a joyful meal punctuated by live Jewish music and participatory singing along with great stories from amazing people.

Imagine a room of tables full of friendly and interesting people, enjoying a delectable Shabbat feast punctuated with beautiful Jewish and Sabbath music played by fabulous jazz musicians along with stories and teachings interwoven with the music.

Our Musical Shabbat Table is an modern adaptation of the Hasidic Tish that takes place on Friday evening when the Hasidim sing in chorus in front of their Rebbe. Our version is egalitarian, is for all ages, features talented musicians moving us to sing our favorite Jewish songs, and storytelling and words of Torah that inspire. We enjoy a “Shabbatluck” feast in which we all contribute dairy, vegan, or fish dishes. We offer supervised childcare adjacent to the main room to make it comfortable.

This is a unique Shabbat and Jewish experience comfortable whether you are culturally or religiously oriented.  If you are in the mood for a spiritual, enlivening, joyful, engaging, and memorable Shabbat experience, you will not want to miss the Musical Shabbat Table.   Experience the joy of Shabbat and Jewish hospitality of Panim Hadashot-New Faces.

Features the story of Daniel Machar, a former child soldier from Sudan and his amazing story of how he came to the USA where he discovered his passion for serving adults with special needs.  We will also have a children’s mini Musical Shabbat Table at 6:30pm prior to the start of the regular program.
