“First Friday…Live!”

By Maxine Graboyes

Our celebratory “First Friday… LIVE!” evening Shabbat service is a time set apart to focus on what really matters: gratitude for our lives and our communities and for the growth of the spirit. An important part of that process is the opportunity to pray, sing, meditate, and learn together as a community.

Join us for a lively, musical Shabbat service on Friday, February 2, at the Jewish Cultural and Community Center. We will honor the traditions of Judaism by using familiar and contemporary poetry, songs, stories, and other readings. You are invited to join in the singing, share in the readings, and be an active, joyous participant.

We will begin our Shabbat gathering with a “meet and greet” Oneg Shabbat at 5:30pm. The service itself will begin at 6pm and conclude by 7pm (in time for your evening plans).

The service will be led by Maxine Graboyes, formerly the Cantorial Soloist for B’nai Vail Congregation in Vail, Colorado, for the past 23 years. She brings grace and enthusiasm to the music, which makes people want to join in, raise their voices, and experience the joy of Shabbat. Maxine has also had a long career as a professional singer on Broadway, television, in clubs, and on recordings.

Joining Maxine in leadership will be Judith Jenya, a life-long explorer of various Jewish paths, whose work with international Jewish organizations has garnered her awards. Judith also served as a former director of a large Reform synagogue in northern California.

We look forward to your heartfelt participation. We want to build a welcoming community and make a spiritual home for nontraditional Jews and those who may not have participated in other Jewish observances in San Miguel.

“First Friday … Live!” will happen each first Friday of the month at the newly renovated JC3 (the Jewish Community & Cultural Center), Las Moras 47, at the corner of Cinco de Mayo, in Colonia Guadiana. All are welcome!
