“Lecha Dodi” – Preparing to greet the Sabbath Bride in Jerusalem

In preparation for the Sabbath, musical melodies fill Mount Zion and the alleyways of the Jewish Quarter. We will follow the sounds of liturgical song from the East and the West, poetry from the past and the present.

A special magic envelopes Jerusalem as the Sabbath approaches. Residents begin their preparations for the arrival of the Sabbath Bride, and the city takes on a lovely festive air.


Let us set forth during this special time for a tour of Sabbath preparations, in search of melodies of praise from the East and the West, songs of past and present poets, and legends and stories about Sabbath festivities and Jerusalem.


The tour will be accompanied by a musical ensemble.
