Alternative Shabbat Service Schedule

Beginning in November, Rabbi Amy and Cantorial Intern Kochava will be offering alternative services once a month on Shabbat mornings. Alternative services will be musical and contemplative, including spiritual intentions, poetry, story, and interactive Torah.

Weather permitting, the services will take place in our beautiful yurt from 10-11:30am.

The scheduled dates are: 11/10, 12/1, 1/5, 2/2, 3/2, 4/6, 5/4, and 6/8

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, as are their parents. 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. During the 2016-2017/5777 year, our bar/bat mitzvah and holiday services will feature guest cantor, Cantor Heather Batchelor.

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.
