“The meaning of the Sabbath is to celebrate time rather than space. Six days a week we live under the tyranny of things of space; on the Sabbath we try to become attuned to holiness in time. It is a day on which we are called upon to share in what is eternal in time, to turn from the results of creation to the mystery of creation, from the world of creation to the creation of the world.”Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
Family Shabbat, Fridays at 7:00 PM.
We’ve moved our regular Friday night Shabbat to 7:30 PM so that families can join us for a service before the service.
Emily will be leading families in song, prayer and a bisl of Torah.
This is perfect for those who are in jammies already. Join us on Zoom!
Kabbalat Shabbat (Welcoming Shabbat), select Fridays at 7:30 PM.
Come and join us as we welcome Shabbat with prayer and song! We begin by lighting the Shabbat candles together transition from the secular week into the spiritual and holy nature of Shabbat. Music, singing, and fellowship are a central part of our service, which in non-COVID times, is followed by a delicious Oneg Shabbat (treats).
Shabbat Morning Service, select Saturdays at 10:00 AM.
Our Shabbat morning service includes many of the traditional elements: Birchot haShachar (morning blessings), P’sukei d’Zimra (songs of praise), and Shacharit (morning service) along with modern tunes and commentary. The central feature on Shabbat morning is our Torah service. Rabbi leads the service as various congregants chant from the Torah and join in song. If you are interested in chanting Torah, please let us know!
Following our Shabbat morning service, we share a potluck luncheon (dairy/scaled fish only please), allowing us to further the celebration of our day of rest and get to know each other. This has been temporarily suspended due to COVID protocols but will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.
