Shabbat Services

Kabbalat Shabbat

Join us on Friday evenings as we welcome Shabbat with joyous song. Service times are listed in our printed and digital Shabbat Sheets, our bi-monthly Bulletin, and our Service Times calendar.

Our Friday Night Fun series, primarily during the summer months, as well as periodic Shabbat dinners, in conjunction with our Shabbat Around the World series, Camp Givah or young families group enhance our celebration of Shabbat.

Shabbat Morning Services

Shabbat morning is a wonderful time to mark significant moments in our lives, such as anniversaries and birthdays, births, Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, and aufrufs.

Our monthly Tot Shabbat for young children is filled with songs, stories, snacks, and surprises, and our SHABBATeen service brings the fun of summer camp Shabbat experiences to synagogue with prayer, games, and singing.

Our unique treatment of the Torah reading at our Shabbat morning services has become a model around the country. The Torah reading is an opportunity for you to learn with the Rabbi. Service times and information about special events taking place on a given Shabbat are published in our weekly printed and digital Shabbat Sheets, our bi-monthly Bulletin, and our Service Times calendar.

Seudah Shleesheet

We serve a light meal after the Shabbat afternoon service during which we sing Zemirot (Shabbat melodies) with the Cantor and study with the Rabbi. We conclude Shabbat with the evening service and Havdallah.

Minyanim

We hold morning and evening services every day. Our regular morning minyan times are below. Our evening minyan meets Sundays through Thursdays throughout the year, although minyan time varies based on the season.
