The Sway Machinery’s Jeremiah Lockwood to Help Lead Jewish High Holiday Services
Jeremiah Lockwood leads The Sway Machinery, a New York-based group that features members of Antibalas, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Arcade Fire. The grandson of the legendary Cantor Jacob Konigsbergi, Lockwood has brought elements of Jewish life into his secular music over the years and, during this year’s Jewish High Holidays, he will help lead services at New York’s 92YTribeca. Standing alongside 92YTribeca’s Rabbi-in-Residence Dan Ain, Lockwood will perform during this year’s Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. The services are described as “a blend of the old and the new, the relevant and the esoteric, the fasting and the rejoicing.”
Here’s a look at the High Holiday services’ Lockwood will participate in
Erev Rosh Hashanah: 6:15 pm on Sep 16, raise a glass to the New Year with appletinis and honey cake before Erev Rosh Hashanah services begin at 7 pm.
