"A new album of a local couple seeks to make the music of the service an uplifting, inclusive experience." —Baltimore Jewish Times
The Kavanah Kit includes new melodies, drashot, and iyun tefillot for the following Shabbat liturgy:
Tovu—Eilu D'varim—Elohai N'shama
Higid L'kha—Ashreinu—Eilekha Adonai Ekra—Barukh She'amar
Torat Adonai T'mima—Mi Ha'ish—Hodu Ladonai—Tov L'hodot
Tzadik Katamar—Hal'lu Eil B'kodsho—Az Yashir—Nishmat Kol Khai
Or Khadash—Emet V'yatziv—Adonai S'fatai Tiftakh—Yismakh Moshe
V'shamru—Am M'kad'shei—Eloheinu Veilohei—Y'varekh'kha Adonai
Sim Shalom—Oseh Shalom—Barukh Haba—Mi Sheberakh (l'kholim)
Eitz Khayim Hi—Y'hi Ratzon Milfanekha (l'shalom)—Ashrei—K'vodo Malei Olam
Ein Keiloheinu—Adon Olam—Havdalah Blessings (and Our Shabbos Now Has Ended)
In the Become A Blessing Kavanah Kit, Gather the People offers another tool for congregational development. While many factors effect membership participation and growth, incorporating music that is both spiritually uplifting and easy to learn can be a significant consideration, since current and prospective members often make their most critical contact with congregational life during Shabbat services. Moreover, tools to teach the meaning and relevance of the liturgy to daily life—particularly those parts of the liturgy that are sung by the congregation—can be especially valuable in encouraging longer term interest and investment in Judaism and congregational activities.
The Become A Blessing CD or cassette
album offers 36 new melodies to stimulate attendance and participation in Shabbat
services. A Book of Intentions, with its drashot and iyun tefillot, can be a
valuable teaching tool for learners' services, introduction to Judaism classes,
davening workshops, or individuals, and as a source of supplementary readings
for Shabbat and holiday services.
The Kavanah Kit can be a useful tool for rabbis, cantors, religious educators, choir directors, accompanists, and other leaders, members, and staff whose responsibilities include teaching any aspect of the Shabbat liturgy, which gives them an indirect but important influence on congregational development.
