Our Shabbat morning service, whether in our beautiful Sanctuary or intimate chapel, is designed to help you become mindfully present in sacred space, time, and community.
Shabbat is the most cherished creation of the Jewish spirit; it mirrors the essence of the Jewish soul.
What is the greatest contribution that the Jews have given Western Civilization? The serious answer given by historians is ‘ethical monotheism’ (belief in one God), but the (half) joking answer is …the weekend! Yes, Jews invented the weekend and we call it Shabbat. This is our time to connect actively to something higher than ourselves through contemplation, prayer, music and community.

Although you might come into our Sanctuary by yourself, you will leave knowing people’s names, their stories, their simchas (happy events), hopes for healing and commemorations of loved ones. As importantly, your new friends will begin to know these things about you.
Our services are family friendly, egalitarian, inclusive and inspirational. Please join us!
Friday Evening Oneg
Join us after services for a celebratory Oneg reception over homemade desserts.
Our Shabbat morning service, whether in our beautiful Sanctuary or intimate chapel, is designed to help you become mindfully present in sacred space, time, and community. Our participatory services, often co-led by our B’nai Mitzvah, will empower you to connect to Jewish traditions, the spiritual text of the Torah, your ancestors, God and your neshama (soul).
Chevrah Torah (Torah Study) Saturday Morning 9:00 am in the Library
In Judaism, the study of our sacred texts is considered an act towards Divine Connection on par with prayer. It is rare that one has the time to be “spiritually selfish,” meaning to take the time to further one’s own spiritual development. Chevrah Torah is an opportunity to explore, struggle and delve in a nurturing and intimate environment.
Hosted in the intimate setting of our library, surrounded by learners of every age and various backgrounds, our Torah study lifts up our sacred stories to examine the existential and timeless societal quandaries of the human condition. No formal knowledge of Judaism or Hebrew is necessary; every study session is made accessible through commentary and translation.
