Peri Smilow Returns to Sinai for Shabbat Shira!
Friday, February 10
5:30 PM dinner
6:30 PM service
Shabbat Shira celebrates the song sung by the Israelites when they’ve finished crossing the Red Sea – it is found in chapter 15 of Exodus. Singing is the order of the day. We are fortunate to host Peri Smilow, internationally known singer/songwriter of contemporary Jewish music. As a performer, composer, educator and activist she has the unique ability to deeply move people of all ages, to forge connections and understanding and to use her extraordinary musical gifts, passion and commitment to community to create social change. Peri's music and message of tikkun olam have been heard throughout the US, Canada, England, Singapore and Israel. She was the Artist-in-Residence at the World Union for Progressive Judaism's international Connections Conference in Israel (2009) and at the Limmud Conference in the UK. She has appeared as headline performer at numerous URJ National Biennial Conventions and CAJE conferences. In 2007 Peri was commissioned to compose a new piece of music to celebrate the release of the The Torah: A Women's Commentary. She has also been a visiting artist-educator at the Reform Movement's summer camps and has served as visiting faculty at Hava Nashira National Songleader Institute.
