Shabbat

Ahad Ha’am famously said: More than Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jews. This is our time to connect actively to something higher than ourselves through contemplation, prayer, music and community.

Saturday Torah Study 10:00 am

In Judaism, the study of our sacred texts is considered an act towards Divine Connection on par with prayer. Join us in the sanctuary for an opportunity to explore, struggle and delve in a nurturing and intimate environment. Surrounded by learners of every age and various backgrounds, our Torah study lifts up our sacred stories to examine the existential and timeless societal quandaries of the human condition. No formal knowledge of Judaism or Hebrew is necessary; every study session is made accessible through commentary and translation and you can join by Zoom.

Saturday Shabbat Morning Services 10:30 am

We offer Shabbat services every Saturday morning with an option to join online. Although you might come into our Sanctuary by yourself, you will leave knowing people’s names, their stories, their simchas (happy events), hopes for healing and commemorations of loved ones. As importantly, your new friends will begin to know these things about you. Our services are family friendly, egalitarian, inclusive and inspirational. Please join us.
