SXSW Alternative Kabbalat Shabbat Features Music and New Media
The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and the ROI Community are presenting WAREHOUSE ATX at the SXSW Festival in Austin, TX. WAREHOUSE ATX, featuring musician Josh Nelson, is an alternative Kabbalat Shabbat experience using music and new media. The event will be followed by ROI Unplugged, a musical showcase featuring musicians Simja Dujov, Neshama Carlebach, Noa Margalit and Ami Yares.
Building Jewish community at events like SXSW – a set of music, film and interactive festivals that draws tens of thousands – is a natural fit for a partnership between ROI Community and the Reform Movement. As an international network of more than 800 activists and change makers in 50 countries who are redefining Jewish engagement, ROI Community is working at the bleeding edge of identity and community. The Reform Movement is committed to building a living Jewish experience for a diverse and vibrant community.
