Tot Shabbat 

Come sing, clap, and dance your way into Shabbat with your baby, toddler, or preschooler! One Shabbat a month, children and their grownups gather for a gentle introduction to the music and concepts of Shabbat, followed by challah, juice, and a vegetarian potluck. We also offer an occasional Havdalah celebration. Traditional songs and prayers are interspersed with lively, kid-centered tunes that might have you making (imaginary) chicken soup one week or welcoming a dinosaur to Shabbat the next! Story time is always included. No prior knowledge of Hebrew or Shabbat prayers needed, so come join the fun!

More about spiritual life at OZ: 

We offer a full complement of religious services, from daily minyan to Shabbat and Festival worship.

Our Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat service is “havurah-like”. All present are encouraged to participate in joyous and meaningful liturgical songs as we welcome Shabbat.

Families and children are encouraged to attend. Most Friday evening services begin at 6:00 PM and are typically held in the Samuelson Saiger Sanctuary (the small sanctuary).

Our Shabbat morning service is traditional egalitarian with new melodies and kavannot (spiritual intentions) periodically introduced and incorporated.

Following services, everyone is invited to join us for Kiddush – often a lunch donated by synagogue members or bar/bat mitzvah families, where all are welcome. Saturday morning services begin at 9:15 AM.

Our daily minyan services are held every weekday and Sunday evenings at 7:00 PM and additionally on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. By attending these services, we offer support to members of our community who are saying Kaddish for a deceased family member.

PLEASE NOTE: We will do our best to arrange for a minyan for guests with one week’s notice. Please contact our office at 802.864.0218 if you are a guest at OZ in need of minyan.
