The Kirtan Rabbi, Free Synagogue of Flushing, NY, October 30, 2009

Free Synagogue of Flushing will present a one-of-a-kind musical event featuring the Kirtan Rabbi on Friday,
October 30, 8 PM, at 41-60 Kissena Boulevard (between Main Street and Sanford Ave.), Flushing, Queens. Admission is FREE.
Rabbi Andrew Hahn, known as the Kirtan Rabbi, weaves traditional Jewish liturgy and musical modes into the increasingly popular call-and-response form of singing called Kirtan. Originally from India, Kirtan is described as "a form of chant designed to heighten participation, communal feeling and ecstatic communion with the divine." Kirtan calls for full participation from the audience and promises to be an uplifting experience. Some free parking available adjacent to synagogue.
