Pizmon returns to Shaare Zedek

Shaare Zedek Synagogue welcomes back Pizmon, a Jewish a cappella singing group from Columbia University, Barnard College and the Jewish Theological Seminary. This group of talented college students will celebrate a weekend of music and learning to kick off the second year of Shaare Zedek’s “Ruach Am’cha” Music Initiative.

The musical weekend begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29, for Shaare Zedek’s Friday evening service, Shabbat Rinah and a mini-concert celebrating the consecration of our Shaare Shalom Religious School students. Following the service, at 7:15 p.m., a Shabbat dinner will feature singing and spirit led by Pizmon. Dinner reservations are required by Oct. 27 and costs $18 for adults ($15 for Shaare Zedek members) and $12 for children 12 and under ($10 for members).

At 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30 Pizmon will lead a “Lunch and Sing” session at Shaare Zedek following Shabbat morning services.

Staam, Washington University’s Jewish a cappella group will join Pizmon at 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening for Havdalah and a special concert. This evening of collegiate a cappella singing is sponsored by both St. Louis Hillel and Shaare Zedek Synagogue. A $5 donation is suggested for this event.
