Shabbat Services Update
(updated August 29, 2022)
Friday evening services will be on hold until after Simchat Torah.
We continue to hold in-person Shabbat morning services starting at 10 am. The next Saturday morning service led by Hannah Jodrey will be Sept. 3. Linda Epstein will lead on the other Shabbatot.
For our members’ safety, we will continue to follow Covid protocols by distancing our chairs; however masks will be strongly encouraged rather than mandatory. This will allow us to resume onegs following Shabbat services.
If you have someone new for the Mishaberach list or someone to remove from it, and/or the Yahrzeit list, please let us know. If you would like an Aliyah by proxy, also let Linda know, and we will accommodate if the Torah is read.
Contact Suzanne Basker or Linda Epstein if you are able and willing to read from the Torah.
Watch for updates.
Malvina Rapko and Hanna Jodrey hope to re-launch ReJewvenation, an engaging and welcoming Kabbalat Shabbat musical services usually one Friday monthly. Regardless of affiliation, all Jewish people and their families are enthusiastically welcomed and encouraged to join us as we greet Shabbat together, with traditional blessings and songs.
