Friday Evening Worship
Kabbalat Shabbat worship is an early evening service welcoming Shabbat. Our Kabbalat Shabbat program begins with an informal reception at 6:00 p.m. featuring snacks, followed by a beautiful Shabbat service at 6:30 p.m. The services consist mostly of music and are the perfect way to begin Shabbat. Our services are always Kabbalat Shabbat, except for the 1st Friday of the month when we hold an Erev Shabbat service and on the 3rd Friday of the month when we hold H(OUR) Shabbat worship.
Erev Shabbat worship services are held at 8:00 p.m. on the First Friday of the month from fall to summer, followed by an Oneg Shabbat (reception) after the service.
H(OUR) Shabbat worship services are held at 6:30 p.m. the Third Friday of the month from fall to summer. This uplifting musical service is for congregants of all ages – from toddlers to seniors. We sing new and familiar melodies, enjoy the guitar, and hear stories. We begin with an Oneg (reception) at 6:00 p.m. prior to services.
