PHOTOS: Lakewood singer and performer Shua Kessin inspires hundreds at Denver Colorado Shabbos Project

619740_493776_1479081560512By M.K. It was Shabbos Parshas Lech Lecha, away from the typical fanfare and stage lights where world-renowned singer and performer Shua Kessin spent his Shabbos.

As part of the world’s greatest Shabbos event, Shua went to inspire the Jewish communities of Denver Colorado.

The Shabbos, which is part of the The Shabbos Project started in South Africa in 2013, was run under the direction of Rabbi Aron Wasserman and Rabbi Raphael Leban of the Jewish Experience.

Shua spent his Shabbos leading the tefillos at two large different shuls in Denver, as well as leading an Oneg Friday night for many in the community. Shua uplifted all those in the community with his wonderful koach of neginah throughout the Shabbos. Friday night davening was in the classic Carlebach-style, while Motzei Shabbos Shua blended together Carlebach songs, and his own hit songs with his band Harmonics.

One of the highlights was the inspiring Havdalah and concert by Shua on Motzei Shabbos with his band Harmonics, bringing together the Shabbos to an amazing uplifting close for many in the community.

Together with Rabbi Rephael Leban, Rabbi Aron Wasserman, Rabbi Danny Wolfe and others of the JE organization, Shua touched the hundreds of Yidishe Neshamos throughout the community.

  1. R Shua is a superb talent and even a bigger Tzaddik. I just wanna say, I’ve played with him several times at Misameach calls. The amount of time he gives away for Chessed, away from the lights and cameras is staggering. For every one time you see a pic of him playing somewhere for Chessed, there are 50 more that the public will never know about. Go, Shua, Go !!
