Ritual

The Synagogue holds Shabbat services every Saturday at 9:30am. Throughout the year we also schedule Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat services, using traditional liturgy, songs, niggunim (wordless melodies), and meditation to welcome the  transition from the Sabbath and transition out of the work week. Check our weekly Update for upcoming Kabbalat Shabbat services.

Our Shabbat services are member-led. Rabbi Or Rose, our visiting Rabbi-Scholar, visits several times a year to conduct services and workshops, and also leads our High Holiday services. Rabbi Rose is the founding director of the Center for Global Judaism which provides educational programming and resources on issues of contemporary Jewish spirituality, Israel-Diaspora relations, religious pluralism and environmental responsibility. He also serves as co-director of the Center for Interreligious and Community Leadership Education, a joint venture of Hebrew College and Andover Newton Theological School.
