92Y's alternative "downtown" High Holiday services with Rabbi Dan Ain and The Sway Machinery's Jeremiah Lockwood move to Brooklyn this year.

Alongside Rabbi Dan's Torah teaching and preaching (on how we observe our world and how the world observes us), singer/guitarist Lockwood leads worship that is part old-world Ashkenazi High Holy Day wailing and part Delta Blues.

This year, they'll be joined on keyboard and accordion by Shoko Nagai (Songs of Zebulon) and the explosive drummer John Bollinger (Barbez) with additional special guests TBA.

All are welcome this Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as we take some chances - religiously and musically - in a gorgeous new space.


Located at 509 Atlantic Ave in Downtown Brooklyn.

Take the 2, 3, 4, 5, C, G, D, M, N, R, B & Q trains or the LIRR


Brief Bios

Rabbi Dan Ain is part preacher, part philosopher, part interviewer and provocateur. He finds holiness in honest conversation, in the spaces where people can say what they really think and allow others to do the same.

For the past decade, Rabbi Dan has been creating opportunities and contexts for these interactions – hosting Friday Night Dinners with comedians and cosmologists, klezmer brunches with artists and analysts, appearing on Sunday morning TV and in private apartments with groups of close friends looking for a way to talk about God on their own terms. He encourages conversations that are sometimes funny (with Gilbert Gottfried), sometimes challenging (with Deepak Chopra), sometimes sacred and sometimes profane.

He lives in Brooklyn with his wife Alana Joblin Ain and their daughter, Autumn Prayer.

Find him on Twitter at @rabbidan.

Son of composer Larry Lockwood and the grandson of the legendary Cantor Jacob Konigsberg, Jeremiah Lockwood began his musical career playing on the streets of Manhattan. He soon struck up a relationship with Piedmont Blues master Carolina Slim, with whom he still performs. Jeremiah and Carolina Slim have appeared together in Avery Fisher Hall, the New School Blues Festival and have been profiled in The New York Times Magazine and Time Out New York. Jeremiah has worked for years as the front man for The Sway Machinery, a blues/world beat/Chazzanus ensemble that is currently revamping its sound and taking New York by storm with the help of friends from the Antibalas horn section. Recently, Jeremiah has been working as a composer for film and theater, scoring the Adam Vardi film "Mendy" and a documentary piece on Israeli artist Miriam Cabessa that was featured as an installation at the Tel Aviv Modern Art Museum. Jeremiah lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife Shasta and their sons Moses Lion and Jacob Ulysses.
