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.

Please note, the following on-site events will not take place on-site during COVID-19 Quarantine.

Friday night services and Torah Study will live-streamed on Zoom.  See links below to connect.

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. Enjoy bagels and lox along with the spirited conversation.

Saturday worship

9:15-10:30 am

Upcoming Dates canceled due to COVID-19

Light streams through our magnificent stained-glass windows while the sounds of prayer, song and Torah embrace us. Intimate and informal, our morning Shabbat service follows the basic structure of the Mishkan T’filah prayerbook. When b’nai mitzvah are called to the Torah, services may last an additional thirty to forty-five minutes. It’s a simcha. What’s the rush?
