Through a wide range of truly meaningful spiritual experiences, we offer something for everyone, including Weekly Friday Night and Shabbat Services, Tot Shabbat, Adult Services, and our special monthly Synaplex Shabbat which features keynote speakers, actvities for all ages and dinner. You can also celebrate Shabbat or Havdallah at dinner with old and new friends in the warmth of a fellow congregants home through our Shabbat/Havdallah with Friends program.

Friday Nights

Our Friday evening services are filled with song, music, dance, meditative moments and Torah. Moments of the service are set aside for Cantorial and choir pieces from the myriad traditions of Jewish music, as well as a D’var Torah – a teaching from the week’s Torah portion or Jewish perspectives on the events of the world. The Torah will also be read. Young and old are welcome.

Kabbalat Shabbat

Join us for music, moments of meditation, prayer, and learning from Torah. Services begin with congregants lighting Shabbat candles and conclude with recitation of Kiddush and the Priestly blessing, and singing Sholem Aleichem.
