Kol Tzedek will attempt to match guests and host homes for Friday and Saturday nights. If you are traveling from out of town and would like to stay with someone, please tell us about your housing needs/preferences. If you can provide a space on your floor, couch, or guest bedroom, please tell us about your ability to host (number of people or families, kids OK, etc.) NOTE THAT KT CANNOT PROVIDE HOME HOSPITALITY IN HEKSHER KOSHER HOMES. We ask that you negotiate Shabbat observance over email before the date.
When Let My People Sing! happens at the Isabella Friedman retreat center, we offer three different tefillah options: Orthodox, Traditional Egalitarian, and Alternative/Renewal. For Let My People Sing! Philly, we will have one service that honors the minhag hamakom (custom of the community) of Kol Tzedek. The tefillah services at LMPS Philly will use the Kol HaNeshama siddur, which is aligned with the Reconstructionist movement. The services will be a mix of chanting, traditional Reconstructionist liturgy, and song. The only instruments we will be using are our voices. Maybe this type of service is new for you or outside of your comfort zone. Even so, we encourage you to join us in prayer, in whatever way feels authentic to you. We are also considering adding a yoga/meditation/chanting break-out group during the first part of the Saturday morning service (but we will do the Torah service together). If you can offer leadership or support during the Friday night or Saturday morning services, please indicate how:
The song sessions at Let My People Sing will be entirely led by participants. Want to lead an hour-long song singing and/or sharing session? Please provide a SESSION TITLE and ONE-PARAGRAPH PROPOSAL below. We also welcome musical session leaders in our children's programming (ages 1-4 or ages 5-12). These sessions can be as short as 20 minutes, and can take place during services on Friday night or Saturday morning, or during the sessions on Saturday afternoon. Note: You are not required to lead a session; feel free to skip the following questions.
