Shabbat Morning Services

(Please see monthly service schedule for times and weekly portions)

Our unique treatment of the Torah reading at our Shabbat morning services has become a model around the country.  The Torah reading is an opportunity for you to learn with the Rabbi. Shabbat morning also is a time to mark significant passages in our lives, such as weddings, births, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. To encourage participation, we also provide a Shabbat Shorashim for children 7 years and younger twice a month.

Seudah Sh'lishit

We serve a traditional meal after the Shabbat afternoon service.  The Cantor leads us in melodies called Zemirot. Shabbat concludes with the evening and Havdallah services.
