Shabbat Services
SHABBAT  begins on Friday evening and concludes on Saturday evening. It's a weekly time (traditionally 25 hours) for us to focus on what really matters: gratitude for our lives and our communities, and the growth of our spiritual connectedness. We take the opportunity to pray, sing, meditate, and study together at Shabbat services.
Friday Night Shabbat
  • First Friday Kabbalat Shabbat (on the first Friday night of every month) begins at 6:30 pm in the autumn/winter and at 7:00 pm in the spring/summer. Services are filled with song (selected pieces can be heard  here) and last approximately 30 minutes. (To celebrate Shabbat-at-Home, we invite you to click  here for a how-to guide and blessings.)
  • Services are followed with a delicious Shabbat dinner, with home-made challah, salads, chicken-matzah ball soup, and camaraderie! 
Shabbat Day
  • Shabbat Morning services begin at 9:30 am and run until shortly after noon. Prayer, Torah reading, and Rabbi Fajnland's sermon applying Torah values to our daily lives make for an introspective and empowering way to sanctify Shabbat.
  • Kiddush Luncheon follows services. Over challah and a full Kiddush lunch, we schmooze, eat, sing, and build lifelong friendships. Celebrate your birthday, anniversary, or other family occasion by sponsoring a kiddush. It is a beautiful way of sharing your personal celebration with the community.

Note: Some people “dress up” for Shabbat and Holiday services, wearing business casual or business formal. Casual dress is fine; we just need to respect the prayer environment. (The synagogue has kippot (head coverings) and prayer shawls available for your use.)
