Join 92Y's Rabbi Dan Ain for an evening of music, conversation and worship. And food.

Along with Jeremiah Lockwood, front man for the Sway Machinery, Rabbi Dan will lead a Friday Night "service" that is part delta blues, part ashkenazi wailing and part old-time religion.

Following the music, Rabbi Dan will host a delicious Friday Night dinner and discussion about some of today’s biggest questions (religious or otherwise!). Come participate in a discussion that is open, inclusive and (potentially) dangerous to conventional wisdom.

A note from Jeremiah Lockwood:

"Excited to be working with Rabbi Dan Ain this Friday night in Park Slope on presenting a sabbath service ... I'm digging deep in the musical treasure trove, reviving some incredible 19th century melodies from Yeruchom haKaton and Nachman of Breslov ... good stuff! Even more incredibly, I'll be playing with Shoko Nagai for this, one of my favorite artists in NYC! An amazing and unique experience ... I hope some of you will check it out ... tickets include dinner ... a rich evening, to say the least!"

Our menu, provided by the V Spot Café in Brooklyn:

Variety of mini empanadas
Summer rolls w/ homemade peanut sauce
Chips w/ salsa and house salad
Organic quinoa w/ kale and chickpeas
Lasagna (made w/ org whole wheat noodles)
Assorted desserts

and of course …
Challah and wine

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, sometimes challenging, sometimes sacred and sometimes profane.

Rabbi Dan 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.
