Gabi Meyer will be leading a spiritual musical Shabbat this Friday. Gabi is a talented musician who works to integrate sacred music, movement, interactive meditations and chanting. He will be showing his movie about a Jewish Muslim Peace Project at the World Music Hall at 5:30, and his “Spiritual Journey for the Soul of Judaism” service will follow at 6:15.
