Erev Shabbat (Friday Evening)
Shabbat Evening Services are held on Friday evening and last between an hour and an hour and a half. People of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. Immediately following the service we have an Oneg ("delight") at which we say Kiddush (consecrating Shabbat with wine) and enjoy a light snack. The Oneg is a wonderful opportunity to chat, catch up with old friends and make new ones!
Shabbat Morning (Saturday morning)
Informal Shabbat Morning Service
Rabbi Gibson leads us in singing or chanting the Hebrew prayers, interspersed with interpretive readings from the prayerbook. The service includes a reading of the weekly parashah (portion) of the Torah and a short d'var Torah (word of Torah or lesson), usually by a member of the congregation. We conclude with Kiddush, snacks and an opportunity to meet with others. The dress is casual and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Join us for a joyful celebration of Shabbat!
Shabbat Morning Services are also held in the Leebov Sanctuary on Saturday mornings when there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at 10:30 a.m., and last about two hours. Everyone is welcome. (Saturdays, 9:15-11:15 am)
