Fifth Friday Shabbat Service: Grateful Dead (in-person and online)

Friday, March 31, 2023 9 Nisan 5783

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

“People joining hand in hand, while the music plays the band…"

Whenever there are five Fridays in a month, we like to do something a little different. It has been close to 9 months since we’ve enjoyed a Fifth Friday Shabbat with a full Pop-Up Band in the Beyt Knesset, and 14 years since the first Grateful Dead Shabbat.

For those who are unfamiliar, the Grateful Dead started as a group of Menlo Park/Palo Alto locals who were known for their improvisational live performances featuring an eclectic mix of bluegrass, blues, acid rock, jazz, old timey, folk, and more. Dozens of their songs include scriptural references or were directly inspired by words of Tanach.

If you would like to familiarize yourself with the Grateful Dead songs included in the service, please join us on Saturday, March 25 from 1:00 - 3:00 pm for a Grateful Dead Song Circle led by members of our Fifth Friday Pop-Up Band. You can also refer to this songbook and this list of Spotify and YouTube links.
