What is it?

When most people think of holidays, they think of annual celebrations, but in Judaism there is one holiday that occurs every week – the Sabbath. Known in Hebrew as Shabbat and in Yiddish as Shabbos, this holiday is central to Jewish Life. As the great Jewish writer, Ahad Ha-Am has observed: “More than the Jewish people has kept the Sabbath, the Sabbath has kept the Jewish people.” The Sabbath truly has been a unifying force for Jews the world over.

When is it?

During the summer, Shabbat services are held twice a month on Fridays at 7:30 p.m.  From September to May, services are led by our student rabbi once a month.  Please refer to the calendar on the website for specific dates.

Can I sponsor a Shabbat Kiddush luncheon?

Yes! Kiddush luncheons are available for sponsorship! Contact the synagogue at for more information.
