Shabbat Services

We gather on Shabbat for an egalitarian and inclusive service led by Rabbi Stern or lay leaders from the congregation. We use a non-denominational prayer book that contains both traditional and contemporary Hebrew text, English transliterations of many Hebrew prayers, and contemporary English translations.

Friday Night Kabbalat Shabbat

Combining Kabbalat Shabbat and Ma’ariv prayers, worship lasts for about an hour, followed by Kiddush and a brief oneg (refreshments).  We extend an ongoing invitation to join with community members for Friday night dinner (at a local restaurant) following the oneg.

Services begin at 7:00 pm year-round.

Friday Night Tot Shabbat

The Rabbi leads brief monthly family-friendly services geared towards our youngest congregants, introducing them to the celebration of Shabbat through story, song and prayer. Services are followed by an oneg and pizza dinner for all.

Tot Shabbat is generally on the second Friday of each month at 6:00 pm.

Saturday Morning Shabbat


On one Saturday a month, we hold Shabbat morning services that include Torah service. Wrapped in Talit, we sing & pray in community. The Saturday morning experience is especially appreciated by families with children.  A vegetarian potluck lunch follows services.

Services begin at 10:00 am, and lunch begins around noon.  Saturday morning services are not held during the summer.  Check our calendar for exact dates.
