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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
