HaMinyan: A Jewish Broadway Shabbat
Friday, October 31, 2014
Explore the themes of the Shabbat evening service using songs written for Broadway musicals by Jewish composers including Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Jerry Herman, Sheldon Harnick, Stephen Sondheim, and more.
HaMinyan is West End's lay-led, often experimental and always interesting service. HaMinyan takes place at 8:00 pm on the fifth Friday of the month, whenever a fifth Friday occurs. (There is no 6:30pm service on those dates.)
