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.
Join us for a Potluck Shabbat Dinner
This month, we’ll also share a potluck Shabbat dinner after the service. Everyone is asked to come with a dairy or pareve dish to share. Click here and let us know you’ll be staying for dinner.

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.
Arba’im shanah akut b’dor
Va’omar, Am to’ey levav hem
V’hem lo yad’u d’rakhai.
V’sharmru Hatzi Kaddish
V’shamru b’nei Yisrael et ha’shabbat, la’asot et ha’shabbat le’dorotam berit olam:
Beini u’vein benei yisrael, ot-hee l’olam, ki sheshet yamim asa adonai et ha shamaim ve’et ha’aretz, u’vayom ha’shvi’i shabbat va’yinafash.
Ana B’Ko’ach gdu-lat y’min-cha ta-tir
Ka-bel ri-nat am-cha,
sag-vei-nu, ta-ha-rei-nu no-ra.
