Shabbat Evening Services
Shabbat services every Friday night (Kabbalat Shabbat) are “alive” with song and joyful prayer. Each service is followed by an Oneg Shabbat (refreshments and schmoozing). Every week our Friday night service brings something new and exciting to our congregation.
- Family Shabbat (1st Friday Night of the Month – Beginning at 5:30 PM)
- A joyful family Shabbat experience. At 5:30pm, young families with preschool-aged children are invited for Bim Bom Shabbat services. A family Shabbat dinner follows at 6pm (RSVP required) and at 6:30pm family services begin, perfect for elementary-aged children, their families and adults. A story is shared, and children celebrating a birthday that month ascend the bimah to be acknowledged and receive a treat.
- Shabbat Fusion Service (2nd Friday Night of the Month – 6:30 PM)
- An informal one-hour service in the round that fuses music and spirituality.
- “Every Third Shabbat” Service (3rd Friday Night of the Month – 8:00 PM)
- A unique, creative and engaging musical Shabbat experience. Whether it is Jazz, Rock-n-Roll, Israeli, African, or Bluegrass, these services, composed and arranged by our own Hazzan Stein, bring a new sound and energy to our ancient prayers.
- Shabbat Live! (4th Friday Night of the Month – 6:30 PM)
- A musically infused inclusive Shabbat service with a blend of modern and traditional melodies designed to help us reach new spiritual heights. Socializing and wine at 6:00 pm, followed by the service at 6:30 pm, concluding with an Oneg Shabbat at 7:30 pm.
- Klezmer Shabbat with Kolot Tikvah Choir (5th Shabbat of the month, when occurs – 8:00 PM)
- Kolot Tikvah (part of the OurSpace program) is a dynamic musical troupe of teens and young adults with special needs who lead our Shabbat service. Their energy and joy is matched up with Shir Delight, Temple Aliyah’s Klezmer orchestra. Klezmer is driving instrumental and vocal music from the Eastern Europe tradition. This Shabbat is full of energy and unbridled joy– just the way Shabbat is meant to be!
