Saturday, February 10th, 10:00 a.m.
Shabbat is an opportunity to slow down and decompress, reconnect with our spiritual needs, engage with family and friends, reenergize, reflect and prepare for the week to come. Shalom, most commonly used to say hello, goodbye or peace and during Shabbat, it is how we greet each other.
In this spirit, our new monthly Shabbat Shalom program will be a time for all of these ideals to come together. Shabbat Shalom will be more than just a greeting at TIS. It will be an entire Shabbat experience meeting the needs of all ages and stages. Here is how our day will look:
Taste of Shabbat
The monthly Shabbat service YOU should attend …
The abbreviated service with a focus on shared learning allows you to become more comfortable with, more understanding of and more involved with the service. With each gathering, you will be surprised by the mysteries that will unfold. We’ll begin at 10:00 a.m., half an hour later than our usual start time.
Midrash Shabbat hosts a Kiddush Luncheon and inspiring learning that is expert-led and interactive. Topics are varied and offer a broad spectrum of subjects. In addition to Rabbi Dorsch, Midrash Shabbat has hosted a variety of local and national educators, authors and scholars. Click here for this month’s topic.
You will walk away from a Taste of Shabbat/Midrash Shabbat program feeling glad that you attended and you might even make some new friends.
• Shabbat Play Date, led by Michelle Barbour
Families with young children through Kindergarten are invited to come and enjoy free-play, songs, stories, grape juice and challah, and more. This will offer families a place to come, get to know each other and build stronger connections to each other and our community.
• Shabbat Rocks, led by Julia Elhai and Jennifer Tabak-Levy
Kids in grades 1 – 6 (divided into two groups) will explore the weekly parasha, become more familiar with the service, and engage in fun activities. While the kids are together, parents can join us at Taste of Shabbat.
