Shabbat
We welcome Shabbat on Friday evenings. Our services are led by Rabbi Slome and our Student Cantor, Jennifer Rueben. Our music director, Stuart Rauch, is with us each Shabbat.  Our services begin at 7:30 p.m. (please check Temple calendar for family and Religious School Class dinners) and are followed by an Oneg Shabbat that is usually sponsored by the Ladies Guild or one of our temple families. We pray with Mishkan T’filah, the new Reform Jewish prayerbook. Our music reflects contemporary American Reform Jewish pieces, including music composed by our own music director. Rabbi Slome delivers a sermon at most Shabbat services but a guest speaker may be invited occasionally.

Currently we worship in the Sylvane Room until the The Rabbi Joseph I. Weiss Sanctuary is rebuilt as a result of damage sustained due to Hurricane Sandy.

Please refer to our calendar for scheduled events on Saturday mornings.  They can include Tot Shabbat, Shabbat B’Yachad, Torah Study or B’nai Mitzvah.

Tot Shabbat
Tot Shabbat is an opportunity for families with very young children to celebrate Shabbat in a fun, accessible way. Tot Shabbat takes place monthly at 10:30 a.m. and is led by Rabbi Slome and Student Cantor Rueben. Services feature upbeat songs, simple prayers, engaging stories and the taking out of the Torah. Following an age-appropriate prayer service, children and their parents participate in an arts and crafts project together. At the conclusion of the project, everyone gathers for a Kiddush luncheon sponsored a temple family.

Shabbat B’Yachad
Shabbat B’Yachad meets four times a year at 10:00 a.m. It is for our Religious School children in grades K through 7. Parents are invited to Shabbat morning services at 11:30am. A Kiddush luncheon sponsored by a temple family follows.

Torah Study

Torah Study meets on Saturdays (please check calendar for exact dates) at 10 a.m. for conversation, community, and a catered bagels and lox breakfast.  We explore the themes, narrative, and social and political milieu of the Torah.  We read the Torah (in English!) according to the weekly portion and examine our sacred text from both a rabbinic and modern perspective.

BE SURE TO CHECK THE TEMPLE CALENDAR FOR DATES AND TIMES OF SHABBAT SERVICES AND PROGRAMS
