The Family Place to be on Shabbat

Our Saturday morning service options have been rebuilt. This new model is offered WEEKLY (around 40 weeks a year—breaks for summer and school breaks). We will meet from 10:15am – 11:30am with a group Kiddush following the Shabbat Spots.

Our Shabbat Spot  options are for entire (and parts of) families to study and learn together. Your families can choose from the options below.

Kabbalat Spot* is where families come together to celebrate Shabbat. A short family friendly service followed by a dinner.  Families with children or all ages find it a fun way to celebrate Shabbat with family and friends.  

Havdalah Spot* is coming soon.  A fun way to end Shabbat with family and friends.

For more information or questions please contact Andy, Anita, or Avital.
