Shabbat

Rabbi David Spinrad’s Installation Shabbat Dinner

-A A +A

You are here

Shabbat helps renew our lives and deepen our connections with our community, Israel, and the Holy One. Congregants and guests come together to worship, sing and chant Torah. We strive to provide a warm and participatory atmosphere, varied yet familiar, a sanctuary for spiritual nourishment. Throughout the month we offer a variety of Shabbat services, including Tot Shabbat, and Family Shabbat.

Please join us for our pre-service wine and cheese social at  6:30 PM to toast a l'Chayim to the end of the week and to welcome the Sabbath. Service is followed by a fresh-baked Oneg Shabbat.
