Yoel Sykes, Musician In Residence

Yoel Sykes is a main prayer leader in Nava Tehila. He has toured Jewish communities throughout the U.S., leading soulful musical prayer experiences. Yoel has composed many new melodies to traditional prayers, influenced by a variety of musical cultures, that can now be heard and sung in synagogues across Israel and around the globe. Some of the wonderful new songs we have introduced to Beth El come from Navah Tehila, including the Oseh Shalom version we sing during Six String Shabbat.

On Friday night, Yoel will bring together some of our Six String Shabbat guitarists and Shabbat B’Yachad vocalists, creating an energetic and uplifting Kabbalat Shabbat Experience for the entire family. During Shabbat morning services, Yoel will join Rabbi Abraham and Hazzan Krausman to bring us a spiritual Shabbat Encounter. And on Saturday night we will say good-bye to Shabbat and usher in the new week with Yoel, at a joyful Community Coffee House Havdallah that is guaranteed to have us singing along.
