Shabbat

Erev Shabbat – Friday Nights

Kabbalat Shabbat services begin at 7:00 pm. Each service lasts about an hour and, weather permitting, is multi-access (both in person and on Zoom).

In addition, we offer a half-hour Tot Shabbat service the second Friday of each month at 5:30 pm, featuring songs and stories for young children.

Our services are joyous, participatory events. We particularly enjoy congregational singing. On occasion, our Friday evening services may also include a guest speaker or Torah reading.

For Shabbat and festivals, we use Mishkan T’fillah: A Reform Siddur (2007) and for the High Holy Days we use Mishkan HaNefesh (2015), the most current Reform prayer books from CCAR Press.

Erev Shabbat services are open to the public, and we love to welcome visitors. Please contact the office for Zoom links or information about Tot Shabbat. If you visit, please stick around afterwards so we can say “Shabbat Shalom” to you.

Saturday Morning

We hold Shabbat morning services monthly at 10:30 am. Please check the calendar to see when our next Shabbat morning service is scheduled.
