Shabbat

image lg 1349

"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 Heshel

All are welcome to attend our worship services!
 
Dates of our services sometimes change due to Jewish holidays and other calendar fluctuations. Please check the website calendar to be sure of the date. You can also sign up for our weekly e-news here.

Kabbalat Shabbat (Welcoming Shabbat) -- select Fridays at 7:00 p.m. (see calendar)

Come and join us as we welcome Shabbat with prayer and song! We begin by lighting the Shabbat candles together and by chanting a series of six nature-based psalms which remind us of the six days of creation. Music and fellowship is a central part of the service—we receive our day of rest into our midst and into our hearts.
Our service is followed by a delicious Oneg Shabbat.

Shabbat Morning worship – select Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. (see calendar)

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). The central feature on Shabbat morning is our Torah service. We also chant the “haftarah” (concluding part). Our Rabbi leads the service and various congregants chant from the Torah and the haftarah. (If you would like to chant, please let us know!)

Following our Shabbat morning service, we share a dairy/scaled fish potluck luncheon and enjoy prolonging our time together, allowing us to further our celebration of our day of rest.
