First Fridays at 6pm
We invite you to join us every Shabbat for our evening services. Our First Fridays begin in the Fall with a short family-friendly service and a potluck Shabbat dinner following at about 7pm.
For the rest of the month, Shabbat services will begin at 7pm followed by an Oneg Shabbat with coffee, tea, and cakes.
Shabbat Mornings at 9:00am in the Library
Every Saturday morning at 9am we have a short, mostly lay-led Shabbat morning service. The service is informal but includes the major prayer elements (i.e. shema, amidah, kaddish). The service is like a chavurah. As defined by Rabbi Arthur Green, “Chavurah is related to the word chaver, ‘friend,’ and to chibbur, ‘joining.’ A chavurah is a group of friends joined together for the purpose of spiritual quest, a search for Jewish growth and learning, or shared celebration of the Jewish year.” We currently meet in the library just before Torah study and invite everyone to join us for prayer and stay for learning and good conversation.
Festivals and Special Services
We hold Festival services – including Yizkor on Yom Kippur, Shemini Atzeret, Pesach, and Shavuot.
