Shabbat Morning Services

Shabbat morning services begin each Saturday morning at 10 a.m., following Torah study.

Shabbat Morning Services are led by Rabbi Emily and Cantor Melissa. They are grounded in music, guided by clergy, and celebratory of lay leadership. Zoom services are approximately an hour and a half in length and include a mix of Hebrew (with transliteration provided), with both traditional egalitarian and interpretive translations. If you would like to join us for services, please email Joan for Zoom access.

Torah Study

On Saturday mornings, preceding services, from 9 to 10 a.m., our Rabbi leads a group exploration of the weekly Torah portion, incorporating traditional rabbinic, Hasidic, and contemporary interpretations, as well as the insights of participants. We seek to discover points of resonance between our lives and the Torah narrative, and lessons which might guide us in our daily lives and inform our efforts to repair the world. All are welcome; no prior background or knowledge required.
