The Hebrew word “kabbalah” can mean to “receive” and to “greet.” As we come in, still holding onto the busyness and strain of the week, we open ourselves up to receiving the rest and renewal of Shabbat, and we greet one another as a community of friends.
Every Friday evening we bring in Shabbat together with song and prayer. We gather at 6:15 pm to chant the afternoon mincha prayers and then begin Kabbalat Shabbat. Each of our services is followed by kiddush, motzi, light refreshments and a chance to greet friends.
On evenings of musical services, join us at 6:00 pm and prepare for Shabbat with fifteen minutes of learning with our rabbis, singing, or finding moments of quiet and peace.
