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