Who is Paula?
Never before has there been an artist who has been equally recognized, awarded and celebrated both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, as has Paula Abdul. As a ground-breaking choreographer, dancer, song writer, performer, designer, actor and business woman, this two-time Emmy Award winner and multi-platinum recording artist, selling over 60 million records worldwide, has continued to find new ways to entertain her loyal fans for over 20 years.
More recently Paula has become one of the top public speakers in the industry, touring the world to bring her own passion, drive and amazing experiences to touch the lives of thousands. Her story will surprise you.
Paula Abdul was born in San Fernando, California, to Jewish parents. Her father, Harry Abdul, is from the Jewish community of Aleppo, Syria. Her mother, concert pianist Lorraine (née Rykiss), grew up in one of the two Jewish families of Minnedosa, Manitoba, Canada.
What is Nefesh?
There is spirituality that is lofty and floats way above your head. Then there is Nefesh.
Nefesh means 'soul' in Hebrew. But more specifically, Nefesh refers to the level of the soul that enlivens the body, the interface between spirit and matter. It is down to earth spirituality. Soul you can get your teeth into.
Nefesh is where the soul finds its grounding. Every service, event and class at Nefesh attempts to bring down spiritual truths in a way that can relate to you as you are, right here, right now.
Nefesh is bursting out of its current premises and is moving rapidly ahead with plans for a major renovation. From our humble beginnings in the Moss family dining room 10 years ago, the shul has evolved to become an active and energetic community, and is now ready to take the next step in its growth, securing its future for generations to come.
We are extremely excited about this new venture and we look forward to sharing our journey with you.
