Havdala candle burning brightly

Havdallah

Saturday September 1 , 9:15pm - 9:45pm
Stage in the Round

One of the most revered Jewish rituals, the celebration of Havdallahat the Ashkenaz Festival is likely Canada’s largest outdoor Havdallahceremony. Thousands of people gather to sing together and awaken their senses by smelling spices, drinking wine, and basking in firelight, as the passing of Shabbes(the Sabbath) is marked. This year’s Havdallah is led by Yacov Fruchter of Beth Tzedec Congregation in collaboration with an all-star cast of musicians led by Montreal’s Jason Rosenblatt.
