TGIS (Thank God it’s Shabbat)

Shabbat provides a change from the rest of the week, a time to disconnect from the day-to-day and reconnect with our friends and family. Starting in October we will introduce a Friday night rotation to provide a range of ways to experience Shabbat.

1st Friday: Early Shabbat, 5:30 pm at Shomrei
Oct 6, Nov 3, Dec 1, Jan 5, Feb 2, Mar 1, Apr 5, May 3
Join the whole community for an engaging intergenerational Kabbalat Shabbat service.  Traditionally structured with inviting melodies, this service will be held at an earlier time to accommodate kids. While youth participation is highly encouraged, all ages are welcome!

4th Friday: Shabbat Your Way
Oct 27, Nov 24, Dec 22, Jan 26, Feb 23, Mar 22, Apr 26, May 24
Whether you have a Shabbat dinner at your own home or someone else’s, with one person or many, prepare an elaborate meal or order take-out, there is not one way to celebrate Shabbat. Focused on encouraging the community to ‘do Shabbat’, we will provide resources and ideas so you can choose a way that’s right for you. More details to come in October.

NOTE: There will also be a 6:30pm Kabbalat Shabbat service at Shomrei.
