Welcoming the Bride
Exploring the Songs of Kabbalat Shabbat

Shai Held, Elie Kaunfer

Each week, Jews welcome in Shabbat with psalms and songs sung passionately and jubilantly. But what do these prayers actually mean? In this course, R. Shai Held does a close literary and theological investigation of each of the psalms featured in Kabbalat Shabbat and asks what they can teach us—about Jewish theology, about Jewish spirituality, and about worshiping God. Then R. Elie Kaunfer explores the deeper meanings of the song "Lekhah Dodi."
