Ease into Shabbat for a half hour before Kabbalah Shabbat and discuss the history of Felix Mendelssohn. Together, with Music Director Colin Fowler, this great Romantic composer's music will be explored, as well as his complicated relationship to Judaism. We will focus on his Songs Without Words, as well as discussing his enormous impact in the re-emergence of the Oratorio.
