Kabbalat Shabbat Service

Our Shabbat services are offered online (see it on our App, Download here!) and in-person on the first and third Fridays of every month at 7pm PST. The services will be livestreamed here and in-person at Center for Spiritual Living at 6318 Linden Ave N, Seattle.

Shabbat services are the perfect entry point not only to explore Jewish tradition and spirituality through ancient and modern prayers and practices, but to take a break from the hectic pace of our busy lives and gather together to remember that we are human *beings* and not just human *doings.*

Beit Midrash: The Guide of the Perplexed

1st and 3rd Shabbat Mornings, 10:30 AM
On Zoom

Join us on the 1st and 3rd Shabbat mornings for our study of Maimonides’ The Guide of The Perplexed. This controversial text has been a point of contention for centuries in Jewish communities.

This philosophical masterpiece is, indeed, credited for ushering in a new era in Jewish thought and, as such, for being a transformative influence on our people.

The History of Zionism

On Tuesdays at 6:30PM PST

February 20th – May 21st

There seems to be a new form of the ever-shifting shape of antisemitism that often hides behind the term anti-Zionism. It isn’t overtly directed at the Jewish people, but at the State of Israel instead, the Jew among the nations, born of the Zionist movement.

Rabbi Olivier is inviting us to explore Zionism from a historical perspective so that we might better understand what it was and is today, feel more grounded in our own knowledge, and gain the tools necessary to better respond to the libelous attacks.
