Upcoming Events

Upcoming Shabbat Services

Join our religious leader David Fainsilber as he leads us into the sweet, restoring presence of Shabbat. Musical, dynamic and participatory, these services will revive your neshama yeteira, that extra soul that we receive every Shabbat. If you are planning on coming, invite a friend! The more neshama, the better.

Friday, April 11, 6 p.m.
Shabbat services will be enhanced by a special D'var Torah/sermon delivered by Priscilla Minkin, co-chair of the Chesed Committee. Looking deeply at our Torah portion Acharei Mot/After the death, Priscilla will speak about Aaron's grieving process upon the passing of his two sons. She will ask the question: How can we still stay rooted even when the winds of uncertainty blow?

Friday, April 18, 6 p.m.
