The South Philadelphia Shtiebel* is a Jewish community initiative in South Philadelphia that is grounded in tradition and fueled by the spirit of the new, and which empowers its community members to be active participants in Jewish life, and Torah learning.
 
The Shtiebel is a shul but it’s not just any shul. It is only in its first few months, and it is already also a community center, buzzing with spirited Jewish learning, kids playing, new friendships forming, and lively prayer services. It’s a radically accessible space, where both lifetime shul-goers and people who haven’t set foot in a synagogue in twenty years feel comfortable. And it’s a genuinely unique space, a space rooted in halacha, or Jewish law, and also a home for emergent ideas.

    Light up the Night: A Chanukah Art Gathering
    Wednesday, Dec 25th 7:00p to 9:00p
    Chanukah falls in the dead of winter - external warmth and light diminshed. Why does the bright light of day sometimes go out, the revealed miracles subside? To create a canvas - a void, a darkness, inviting each of us to discover the personal flame burning within. With this internal song, rhythm, and rhyme, we paint light upon the world. We will be offering a space that invites personal expression through a variety of forms, including paint, song, writing and movement. We will create art in pairs and alone, share, sing, and explore together as a group. In partnership with Lecha Lecha (www.explorelechlecha.org)

    SANDCATCHERS (TRIO) PLAYS THE SHTIEBEL!MOTZEI SHABBAT, JAN 11 $10 cover YOSHIE FRUCHTER: oud, vocals MYK FREEDMAN: lap steel MICHAEL BATES: double bass NYC-based Sandcatchers makes a special appearance at The Shtiebel on Motzei Shabbat, January 11! Led by multi-instrumentalist and composer Yoshie Fruchter, Sandcatchers blends the Middle Eastern trope of the oud with the dreamy, Americana-influenced textures of the steel. Featuring original music that is inspired both by maqam and the Appalachian trail, Sandcatchers is a beautiful collaboration of sound and souls. Sandcatchers, in full form, consists of Yoshie Fruchter on oud, Myk Freedman on lap steel, Michael Bates on bass, and Shai Wetzer on drums/percussion, with special guest Erik Friedlander on cello. The ensemble began as a weekly gig in a Brooklyn restaurant and quickly became a focused musical and compositional exploration. The goal of the band has been to establish a sonic combination that is not only pleasing to the ear, but also challenges notions of how we view musical context. The oud has a deep history in the Middle East and strands of tradition spanning centuries, while the lap steel is a much younger entity whose sound is still being established. Together, the instruments have beautiful contrasting timbres but are also unique tools for composition, forming a combination that is both unparalleled and beautiful. Sandcatchers has performed/recorded with Erik Friedlander, David Krakauer, Tim Sparks, Ben Goldberg, and has toured all over North America.
