Shabbat Services

Erev Shabbat Services

Friday Evenings at 6:30pm  

Join us as we welcome the Shabbat with candle-lighting, song and prayer. Friday evening services often include teaching sessions, sermons, guest speakers, or special musical services. 

Services are followed by an Oneg Shabbat, where members and guests can mingle informally and enjoy the Shabbat spirit together. 

Please help with the Friday night services by volunteering your time as an usher. Greeting congregants and handing out prayer books makes a wonderful impression on those attending. All Temple members are encouraged to usher.

  • Deep and spiritually meaningful worship experience, using a liturgy that builds on the traditional Hebrew prayers, yet includes modern perspectives and texts
  • Spiritual connections through the inspiration of musical leaders and the ru’ach of group singing and chanting
  • Deepening understanding of the meaning and history of the liturgy and of Torah
  • Enhancing skills in chanting, Torah commentary, and other participatory aspects of the service
  • Building a strong sense of community and celebrating the joy of Shabbat through ritual and the sharing of kiddush lunch
