Kabbalat Shabbat Services

Friday, October 19th, 7:30 PM
Our Shabbat services provide a perfect entry point for people to not only explore Jewish tradition and spirituality through ancient & modern prayers and practices, but to take a break from the hectic pace of busy lives. They are a bridge to carry our mind, body & spirit from the work-week into the fullness of Shabbat, and a laboratory to learn more about and experience the mystical Jewish path.
