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. All are welcome.


Dates: Saturdays, September 17, October 8, November 19, December 3, January 21, February 18, April 22, May 20

All sessions are from 10:30-11:30 am.
