“God’s presence is in the synagogue…even when one person is there.”
Mekhilta to Exodus 20:21
Shabbat is observed as a day of rest, joy, and holiness. Shabbat is the only sacred day in Judaism that occurs every week and is the only ritual prescribed by the ten commandments.
We offer Shabbat services in-person and via livestream on our website and Facebook on Fridays.
Stay up to date with who will be leading and if a special Shabbat is coming up with our weekly e-newsletter. Sign up here.

We are proud to bring a hybrid of virtual and in-person options to our community so that no one is unable to access the valuable connection they need during the High Holy Days.
