Kabbalat Shabbat Services

Kabbalat Shabbat services begin at 6:15 on Fridays and are full of music and are especially child-friendly. In addition to our regular Friday evening services, on the second Friday of every month, the service is followed by a casual “bring your own and some to share” dinner in which we welcome Shabbat in the warm company of family and friends. This is a great way to get to know people in an informal setting, and a fun way to introduce children to services. Please consult our calendar for dinner services.

 

Shabbat Services

Shabbat Services begin on Saturdays at 10:15 a.m.

 

Morning Minyan

We begin at 7:30 and conclude by 8:15am. Those who wish to leave immediately may do so and start their day with a strong boost of Torah and prayer.

Those who need a caffeine boost, a bagel and a little conversation, can stick around and ease into the morning

Next minyans: September 14, 28 and October 26.

 

For specific details on worship services and schedules, please refer to our calendar.

Some members of our congregation have allergies to scents and perfumes. Please, with consideration for others, practice no scents is good sense.
