Shabbat Evening Service with Guest Singer-songwriter Spike Kraus & The Soul Sisters

10 May @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: sanctuary, Zoom, Facebook

Our year-round, congregational Shabbat evening services are warm and filled with the music and spirit of our community. Services last approximately one hour and are appropriate for all ages. Services are followed by an Oneg.

Jacob “Spike” Kraus’ music has been included in the cantorial curriculum of Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion and is featured by Jewish Rock Radio and PJ Library. Spike has been performing for two decades at synagogues, Jewish day schools, and summer camps. Having just finished a three-year stint as the Artist-In-Residence at Temple Israel of West Bloomfield (the largest synagogue in North America), Spike now tours Jewish communities across the country as a performer, teacher, composer, consultant and energetically joyful individual.

The Soul Sisters are a group of female vocalists from within the congregation who share enthusiasm for singing. Their repertoire includes spirited interpretations of traditional prayers and contemporary Jewish music. Led by Cantor Rachel Reef-Simpson, the Soul Sisters regularly participate in Shabbat services as well as special events. Their music engages the congregation and they are a cherished addition to Temple Emanuel’s music program.
