Gather with us onsite or online for a spiritual Qabbalat Shabbat service with Yoni Battat, connecting music and prayer. All are welcome!

Multi-talented instrumentalist, vocalist, and composer Yoni Battat explores the rich musical traditions of his Iraqi and Polish ancestry, weaving them with his own original compositions. Over the past 15 years, Yoni has been immersing himself in maqam, the musical mode system of Arab music. These efforts gave way to his 2022 debut album, Fragments, which explores his Iraqi-Jewish identity by pairing maqam music with lyrics in Arabic, Hebrew, English, and Yiddish. Yoni now lives in Boston, working locally and nationally toward his mission of bringing Arab music into the soundscape of American Jewish life.
