Teen Girls' Shir HaShirim

Song of Songs III by Marc Chagall (1960)

Song of Songs III by Marc Chagall (1960)

After Musaf on the Shabbat of Pesah, the teen girls of the synagogue read The Song of Songs in the Main Sanctuary for the congregation.  We are proud to have multiple teen girls who have been participating in the service for consecutive years. Some girls sing The Song of Songs in celebration of their bat mitzvah. Immediately afterwards, the congregation joins together for a Kiddush held in the their honor.

 

Please contact Yehudit Robinson if you are interested in participating or would like more information.
