Shabbat Kodesh Family Worship Service


At Shabbat Kodesh, Hebrew prayers are sung with lively melodies, and we experience the weekly Torah reading through interpretation and storytelling.

All are welcome at this inspirational and uplifting prayer service, which is led by our clergy, Lifelong Learning Director Saul Kaiserman and members of our Religious School faculty and builds upon the curriculum and community of the Religious School.

Services are held at 7 PM in the Beth-El Chapel and are followed by a festive Oneg Shabbat; several times during the year, a family dinner precedes the service and a dessert oneg follows. (See the Shabbat Kodesh Calendar of Worship Services for details.)

QUESTIONS? Contact the Office of Lifelong Learning.
