Shabbat Morning Services

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is our "non-pandemic" schedule, which will resume as soon as we are able to return to hosting services, programs and meals in our building.  Please check our calendar for current weekly Shabbat services.

Shabbat Morning Service/Rebbe’s Tish/Kiddush Luncheon

(Weekly, beginning at 9:15 A.M.)
Shabbat Morning services begin at 9:15 a.m. and end at noon. We are an egalitarian congregation; both men and women participate fully in all aspects of this service. It is an upbeat service highlighted by a congregational discussion of the weekly Torah reading, led by the Rabbi. Visitors comment on the haimish (friendly) feeling of this Shabbat morning experience. Following services, the entire congregation is invited to our Kiddush luncheon.  Near the end of lunch,  gather around the Rebbe’s Tish (Rabbi’s table) where we invite the community to sing Shabbat songs, briefly study Torah, and savor the restful beauty of the day.  NOTE: Occasionally, the traditional Shabbat morning service is replaced by our Shabbat 2.0 service (see below)

Sacred Space Minyan

(1st Saturday of the Month – 11:00 A.M.)
This moving service is the place to bring your personal hopes, concerns and prayers. Through music and silent reflection, Jewish ritual and learning, you can deepen your connection to God. Whether you or someone you love is in need of physical or spiritual support, this special service will bring you comfort, serenity and greater peace of mind.

Neshama Minyan

(2nd Saturday of the Month when there is a B’nai Mitzvah – 9:45 A.M.)
Casual…Intimate…Alternative. Join us as we share our voices in a vibrant Shabbat Morning Service in which we celebrate the beauty of Shabbat, connection with community, and the joy of sharing our voices in song.

Shabbat Club

(2nd and 4th Shabbat of the Month – 10:00 A.M.)
Age-appropriate Shabbat programming for children to experience the spiritual, moral and ethical principles of Judaism through Shabbat activities. In addition to sharing Shabbat with friends, children are exposed to value based activities (mensch making), Torah study, prayer and song.

Breakfast, Learning & Torah (BLT)

(Select Saturdays, beginning at 9:15am)
Join our clergy for a light breakfast and discussion preceding our Shabbat 2.0 service.  There is no recurring schedule for BLT, so check the calendar or contact the office for more information.

Shabbat 2.0 Service

(Select Saturdays, beginning at 9:45am)
Following our BLT study session, Shabbat 2.0 is a "Neshama style" service filled with music and singing.  As with BLT, Shabbat 2.0 does not recur on a regular schedule, so check the calendar or contact the office for more information.

Non-traditional Shabbat Experiences

Shabbat in Nature

(2-3 times per year)
On a crisp Shabbat morning, join one of our Rabbis for a walk or gentle hike in a nearby nature preserve or natural setting as we meditate, sing, discuss and pray.  We end the morning at Temple Aliyah for kiddush lunch with the rest of the congregation.

Shabbat Yoga

(1st Saturday of each month at 9:30am)
Celebrate Shabbat with a powerful yoga practice.  With your breath as your guide, gain strength in your body and peach in your mind.  We will incorporate Jewish themes as we flow through a yoga practice as a community.  All ages and levels of experience are welcomed.  Dress appropriately for yoga, and bring a mat if you have one.
