“God’s presence is in the synagogue…even when one person is there.” – Mekhilta to Exodus 20:21
The Hebrew word for Sabbath, 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. Celebrate Shabbat by attending services at Temple Israel!
Our Shabbat schedule is available via Temple’s Weekly News. Sign up for the most updated information at the bottom of this page.
