Updated – Shabbat Shirah Commemoration: A Reprise

January 15, 2022, on Zoom only: For the past two years Congregation Emanu-El held a special service on Shabbat Shirah commemorating the adoption of egalitarian services and remembering our beloved Laurel Nahshon z”l, who was accustomed to celebrating each year “Women on our Bimah” by chanting the Beshalaḥ haftarah. Last year owing to the pandemic, we held an abbreviated service on Zoom that did not include Torah readings. This year we plan to have an in-person/Zoom Shabbat Shirah service on Saturday, January 15, 2022—as the pandemic evolves has evolved, we may have to revert to Zoom only. Mark the date and plan to join us.
