On this night, we’ll gather together and welcome Shabbbat.
Members from our new Kol Tefillah musical group will lead this Kabbalat Shabbat service. Join us for a mix of traditional and meditative prayers to welcome Shabbat.
Following the service, we will share a meal at our Tifereth Israel potluck dinner. We ask everyone to bring a sizeable quantity of a dairy or pareve dish (that does not need to be warmed up) to share with everybody. You can find the Potluck Meal Policy here.
If you would like to join our informal rehearsals before or after this service and just sing with us, please contact the office.
This new Kabbalat Shabbat service is meant to welcome Shabbat with joy, music, intimacy, and an awareness of God’s presence. Together we will join in song, prayer, and niggunim (melodies), as we connect with each other, and with God, as a unified community. Our emphasis will be on communal prayer as we introduce many beautiful melodies that will be more meditative.
We will share links to the music that will be featured in the coming month’s service so everyone can become familiar with the melodies and comfortably participate in this service. We are excited to offer this new alternative to our ever-growing Shabbat opportunities.

L’chu Neranana l’Adonai, nari’a l’tzur yishenu. N’kad’ma fanav b’todah, biz’mirot nari’a lo.
Or zaru’ah la’tzadik, u’li’shrei lev simcha
Ki eem-cha mikor chayim, ki eemcha m’kor chayim, ki eemcha m’kor chayim b’orcha nireh or.

Va’omar, Am to’ey levav hem
V’hem lo yad’u d’rakhai.
