Join us on Friday night to bring in Shabbat with music, community and enthusiasm! Together we will share songs, prayer and nigguns (songs without words) and connect with each other and with God. Our emphasis is on communal prayer and our hope is that everyone will join us in singing. There are links to the music in on the website, so everyone can become familiar with the melodies and be able to comfortably participate in this service. We are so excited to again pray together with you in a joyous way.
Following the service, we will eat dinner at our Tifereth Israel potluck dinner where 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.
Beginning in October, the Kol Tefillah service will be the first Friday of every month.
Our musical group meets most Monday evenings. If you would like to join our informal rehearsals before or after this service and just sing with us, please contact the office. No auditions or experience required – just come with an open heart and be joyous!

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.

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.
