Originating in the Jewish practice of receiving Shabbat on Friday nights, Kesher Kabbalat Shabbat gatherings are post-denominational, non-institutional, Jewniversal* gatherings complete with music, multi-faith prayer, reflection and connection.
We are everyone-friendly and welcome those with Jewish backgrounds as well as friends, partners, allies and spiritual seekers who wish to experience Kabbalat Shabbat in a way that’s meaningful, musical and joyful. We are a growing community and welcome all with open hearts, whether you're just passing through, have moved from interstate or abroad, or if you've been here all your life but want to try something new, so please spread the word and help our community grow.
*Jewniversal means that we are grounded in Jewish tradition and structure while also open to people, prayers and practices from all walks of life.
Keshira haLev is a traveling Priestess who is passionate about Shabbat and the way that it punctuates each week, helping us return ourselves, to natural cycles of time and to blessed wholeness. She uses some of her favourite tools – story, song, sound and stillness – to enhance this sacred time of rest, renewal and delight.
