Welcome Rabbi Josh Warshawsky in Preparation for Shabbat Shira — The Shabbat of Song


January 27, 2021

Music as Midrash

Embedded within each text that we sing aloud are stories, deep secrets, and intricate connections between Hebrew words and themes. The melodies we create and sing are intended to help to better express what the words are already attempting to say. Leading up to Shabbat Shira, Join Rabbi Josh Warshawsky “backstage” as we discuss the stories behind the music, deepen our understanding of the wisdom of our tradition, and sing out with a newfound understanding of the words we bring into the world.

Rabbi Josh Warshawsky is a nationally touring Jewish musician, songleader, and composer. Josh seeks to build intentional praying communities, and travels to synagogues, camp and schools across the country sharing his music and teachings on prayer. He is originally from Chicago, and has released three albums of Jewish music, with a 4th on the way in 2021. Josh’s melodies are written intentionally to express the deep meaning of the words of our tradition. Josh was ordained by the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in Los Angeles.
