TotShabbat July2015Congregation Har HaShem offers a warm and spirited Friday evening Shabbat celebration for young families on the first Friday of the month at 6:00 pm in the North Building sanctuary.

Led by clergy, this service is not just for tots! Join us for this family-friendly Shabbat service with singing, engaging prayers and child-friendly teachings.

Tot Shabbat is for children ages seven years and younger and their parents and grandparents. Older siblings are also invited and encouraged to attend. Children or other family members who have a birthday in that month are encouraged to come celebrate together at a special Oneg celebration following the service!
Free and open to everyone, no RSVP is necessary. Bring your friends!

 

youthShabbat Jan2017Youth Shabbat is a special Shabbat service held once a month for kids and teens in grades 3-12. It is planned and led by the youth group board. These services are fun and interactive! The youth group board creates services that encourage participants to move around and talk to each other. We also are very musical and have song leaders that lead prayer with their guitars.

Youth Shabbat Services are in the South Building from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM (the same time as regular services in the North building).

 

 

 

Torah is our greatest gift! But it isn’t reserved just for rabbis. It is accessible and inspirational to all. Young and not-so-young, experienced and new-comers, all are welcome to explore the Torah portion of the week with Rabbi Greene and volunteers who will take turns to explore the Truths to help make meaning in our lives. Torah study is from 9:00 - 10:00 am weekly, just prior to the Torah service. Bagels and other food, coffee and tea are available starting at 8:45 am.

 

Contemplative Shabbat Experience

Our contemplative Shabbat service, led by Rabbi Ruthie Gelfarb, offers a slower paced and more meditative approach to prayer. Anchored in the traditional liturgy, the contemplative service incorporates guided meditations, silence, soulful melodies, chants, and text study. The contemplative service is an opportunity to explore a different mode of Jewish spirituality that relates to Shabbat as a day of rest and renewal. Accessible to those without a strong Hebrew background. If you have one, bring a meditation cushion.

Har HaShem aims to include individuals of any age who may temporarily or permanently move, hear, see, touch, think, learn, communicate, process stimuli, and/or experience emotions differently.
