Simchat Shabbat

Simchat Shabbat is a musical welcoming of the Sabbath, one Friday a month, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friday night. In class, students prepare to lead selected prayers during Shabbat, and they enjoy sitting together as a group, participating in the spirited Shabbat hymns, and leading the congregation in the prayers they have mastered in class. A social Oneg Shabbat follows the service. Classes are assigned Simchat Shabbat dates and attendance is required. Parents accompany their children to Simchat Shabbat services.

Young Family Shabbat Services

Young Family Shabbat services are a great way to get little kids excited about Shabbat!  Services include music and singing, a hands-on Torah service, and a kids kiddush. When the service ends, kids can join Rabbi Alex on the bimah in the main sanctuary for a treat!

Young Family Shabbat services are held in a Religious School classroom, 10:30 – 11:30 am on Shabbat morning.
