Shabbat offers a time of reflection and joy

Shabbat offers a time of reflection and joy

Sherith Israel is a warm and inviting place to take leave of our hectic week, and calm and refresh our souls. Services enrich us with the prayers and poetry of our updated Reform siddur, Mishkan T’filah. Uplifting music adds a special dimension to our spirituality as our voices join in songs and melodies drawn from traditional, contemporary and eclectic Jewish sources from around the world.

Our ruach (spirit) reaches not only upward but also outward towards each other. Worshiping communally and individually, we find and praise God in the ways most fulfilling to all of us and each of us.

Friday night services held in Sherith Israel's historic sanctuary. Face masks and proof of vaccination required. Services will be streamed on Zoom and YouTube Live.

Torah study

Saturdays, 9:15–10:15 am 

Every Saturday morning, except Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur if they fall on Shabbat, congregants and guests gather to study the weekly parashah (portion). Led by one of our clergy or occasionally by a guest or congregant, the hour offers learning from traditional and contemporary sources, as well as lively discussion. We are not shy about expressing our opinions, and we invite you to share yours.

Saturday worship

First Saturdays, 10:30 am

Cantor Glaser leads a learners' service on the first Shabbat morning of every month and reviews the meaning, structure and significance of our Saturday morning prayers. We will take time to explain key prayer concepts while also participating in a Saturday morning service with old and new melodies from around the world. All are welcome; no background in Hebrew or liturgy is necessary.

Please check Under the Dome for more information each month.
