Song of Songs Festival
The Yerushalom Havurah is inviting you to a Song of Songs Festival to celebrate the Passover-Easter season.
The Song of Songs poetically expresses the love between God and Israel and the love between Christ and the Church, in the Jewish and Christian traditions, respectively. This love was given radical historical expression in the Exodus from Egypt, celebrated on Passover, and in the Resurrection of Christ, celebrated on Easter. Thus, reading the Song of Songs, which is done by Rabbinic Jews on Passover, is equally appropriate for followers of Jesus who want to celebrate the Exodus and the Resurrection.
The Festival will include the reading and chanting of the Biblical Song of Songs in many languages as well as the musical performance of devotional songs based on the Song of Songs. Fellowship and refreshments will follow.
The Festival will take place
- on April 9th, 2023 (Easter Sunday on the Catholic calendar or Yom Rishon of Chol Hamoed Pesach on the Jewish calendar). 18:00-20:00 Jerusalem Time
- at St. Thomas Syriac Catholic Church (Chaldan 6, Jerusalem), close to Musrara neighborhood, Jerusalem.
