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.

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.
