Celebrating Shabbat

Tot Shabbat (ages 2-6 years)

Preschoolers and their parents share Shabbat morning engaged in playful song and dance as well as age-appropriate prayer and torah study. The program is free and open to members and non-members. It meets monthly on Saturday mornings. Subsequent sessions on: 4/9 and 5/7.

Family Havdallah

Join us for an hour of noshing, singing and stories for all ages as we usher out havdalahShabbat. Since this is our last scheduled family havdallah of the year, there will be a special shared dinner. Each family is asked to bring a dish (dairy or parve, please) plus drinks and wine.  We will have the usual singing and stories and maybe some dancing! Contact Mindy Rauch or Dan Rosenbaum if you can come and what you can bring.

Kabbalat Shabbat (Welcoming Shabbat) for Early Bedtimers

Join us as the Rabbi leads a very special Shabbat service from 5:30 - 6:00 PM for young children, their families, grandparents and friends.

 

Congregational Shabbat Dinner

Our communal Shabbat dinner after the service is an enjoyable way to dine with old, new, and soon-to-be friends in the congregation. Come have some fun with our member Don Capelin’s audience-participation trivia game, sing Shabbat songs and learn some Torah. Guests are most welcome.

If attempting to make a reservation after March 8, please dcapelin [at] gmail [dot] com (subject: Congregational%20Shabbat%20Dinner) (email Don Capelin). Some seats may be available.

Shabbat Meditation Before Tefilah

Have you been interested in cultivating meditative skills as a way of quieting the mind, entering contemplative states, expanding self awareness, and having greater access to a direct experience of prayer that holds personal meaning?  We cannot promise that all this will happen after our first meeting, but what we can offer is a series of experiences with our congregant teacher to take place before Shabbat Tefilah in the Synagogue  from 9 to 10 a.m. It is our hope that those wishing to enter a contemplative path will have an opportunity to create an ongoing practice.

Dates: April 2 and May 7.
