Unexpected Traces in Jewish Places: Lecha Dodi (Let it Be) at a Beatles Shabbat in Los Angeles


Beit T'shuvah is a Los Angeles based community with a mission to guide individuals and families towards a path of living well, so that wrestling souls can recover from addiction and learn how to properly heal.
 
The Beit T'Shuvah faith-based model, founded on authenticity and wholeness, integrates spirituality, psychotherapy, Jewish teachings, the 12 Steps, and the creative arts. They are a compassionate, supportive community, devoted to building an empowering sense of belonging and purpose to everyone who seeks it.
 
They also have a band, and last month they recorded a Beatles Shabbat service with all the familiar songs in the Friday night liturgy sung to some of the most popular Beatles songs.

Here's an excerpt from the service with the shul band welcoming Shabbat with Lecha Dodi set to Let it Be.

Enjoy and Shabbat shalom!
