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.
– Abraham Joshua Heschel
Friday Night Services
Friday night services are held at 8pm (except for Fourth Fridays — see below) each week. We invite you to join us as we welcome in Shabbat with prayer and song, joy and reflection. Services include the reading of Torah and are followed by a festive oneg (dessert reception). You can see a weekly list of Yahrzeits that will be read at services here.
Services on the fourth Friday of each month begin at 7pm and are especially appropriate for families with young children (though everyone is welcome to attend and young families should feel free to join us any Friday). The Torah service and sermon are replaced with a story.
Shabbat services are held on Saturday mornings at 10am whenever we are celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. When there is no Bar or Bat Mitzvah, an informal lobby minyan will take place around 10:15am, following Torah Study. Please check the calendar to see when services will be taking place. The whole congregation is invited to celebrate Shabbat with our B’nai Mitzvah.
Shabbat & Schmooze
Join us for an opportunity for warm, casual worship, Torah learning and a light Kiddush lunch to share with your fellow congregants. Shabbat and Schmooze is open to all and is free of charge.
