Kabbalat Shabbat experiment: Bo-i Kallah at BJ

B'nai Jeshurun's Bo-i Kallah "Sefarad-Yerushalayim" egalitarian service is delightful.  Since we're Ashkenazim, we knew almost none of the tunes, but are eager to learn them, and hope to get to this roughly-monthly alternative service every month or two.  The space is small, and doesn't allow for dancing, but the music is a joy, and the instrumentalists (on guitar, hand-drum, and something that may or may not have been a clarinet) are good, though, as stated previously, I do have to learn how to harmonize around musical instruments.

P.S.  Make sure to use the BJ Community House entrance at 270 West 89th Street between Broadway and West End Avenue, or you'll end up in the main service.
