Join us as we continue to experiment with hybrid services over the summer! Rabbi G. and volunteers will be leading from an outdoor location in Jackson Heights. (We'll send you the address and details after you register, but the space is walkable from the Roosevelt Avenue/74th Street subway station and easy to reach by bus as well.) 

Friday, July 23rd from 6:30 PM- 8:00 PM Bring your whole self – body, mind, heart, spirit – to welcome Shabbat with us at our Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat services. Led by Emily Herzlin and Lisa Huberman 

Saturday, July 31 7:30-8:30 PM Join us an informal evening of sharing and the ritual of Havdalah. Malkhutniks Larry Kay and Jim Talbott will lead us as we mark the end of Shabbat and move into a new week together with song and community. Bring your own havdalah set if you'd like: a braided candle, kiddush cup and sweet spices. We can provide the grape juice in person!

Bring your whole self – body, mind, heart, spirit – to welcome Shabbat with us at our Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat services. Rabbi Goldenberg, Kris Wettstein, our music director, and our circle of volunteer singers and musicians hold the sacred Zoom space for ecstatic and contemplative prayer. We also spend time discussing a theme from the weekly Torah portion, connecting it to what is happening in the world. No Hebrew literacy is necessary. All Hebrew is transliterated, and many of our prayers are in English. You are invited to have Shabbat candles, Kiddush cup with wine/grape juice and a challah nearby so that we can visually share in the Shabbat blessings with each other from our homes.

Shabbat morning services – 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month at 9:30 A.M.

We sink into the spaciousness and peace of Shabbat together, with silence, singing, prayer and study. Rabbi Goldenberg hosts meditation and then leads chanted prayer and an interactive discussion of the Torah portion.


Saturday mornings are intergenerational, bringing adults together with our 5th-7th grade Mekhinim students who are learning Hebrew prayer by immersing themselves in the Shabbat morning experience. Towards the end of the morning, younger children enter the Zoom space for blessings before the Children’s Learning and Mekhinim programs begin.
