Welcoming Shabbat with Lecha Dodi by Kol Simcha Choir of Beth HaTephila in Asheville, NC


Tonight we welcome another Shabbat with another version of Lecha Dodi, this time sung by the Simcha Choir of Congregation Beth Ha Tephila, in Asheville, North Carolina.

Founded in 1891 and affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism since 1908, Congregation Beth HaTephila is a contemporary, mid-sized and growing Reform congregation in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Composed entirely of volunteer congregants, the synagogue's Kol Simcha Choir exists to enhance the Jewish experience of choir members and the larger congregation.

In this video, the choir sings the liturgical poem Lecha Dodi, a key part of the Friday night Shabbat service, sung to the melody of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

Enjoy, and Shabbat shalom!
