SUMMER TORAH STUDY, 9:30AM
Over the summer, Shabbat Morning Torah Study is lay led, and will meet outdoors at members’ homes, with an option to join by Zoom. This summer, the Torah Study group will be studying the rich Biblical literature surrounding the life of King David and King Solomon. No experience or knowledge of Hebrew necessary – all are welcome! For more information, including the location for each week’s session, contact Susan Hoffman. Rabbi Kalisch’s weekly Shabbat Torah Study will resume on September 25.
On Shabbat mornings from September to June, we normally meet in person at 9:15am for Torah Study and bagels – no prior experience required. Most weeks, we continue with Shabbat Services at 10:30am in the sanctuary as one of our fabulous Religious School students becomes a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, leading us in prayer along with our clergy.
While every Shabbat is an opportunity to connect as a community, once a month, either on Friday night or Saturday morning, we gather for what we call “Community Shabbat” –a family-friendly celebration in which we learn, pray, and nosh together. These gatherings often coincide with holidays, communal celebrations, or guest scholars and artists, so mark your calendars now so you don’t miss them!
Here is a typical schedule for these gatherings:
6:00 pm – Tot Shabbat in the Sanctuary Early Dinner Downstairs
6:30 pm – Family-Friendly Shabbat Service
7:30 pm – Late Dinner and Dessert Downstairs
9:30 am – Parallel Learning for Children and Adults
10:30 am – Family-Friendly Shabbat Service
12:00 pm – Lunch
