Renewal Service

A service focused on the intention and meaning of the prayers of the Shabbat service.

Musical instruments enhance the prayer experience and active participation is welcomed. See the calendar for dates.

Shabbat in the Circle

Next Service combined with Netzer will be on Friday 3 December 2021 at 6pm.

This monthly service begins with the study of Hassidic and other mystical texts then discusses how they can be applied in daily life.

This is followed by a collaborative musical gathering based on the Shabbat morning service incorporating melodies, poems and dance to enhance our Shabbat.

There is then an exploration of the intersection of Jewish and other sacred spiritual techniques to enrich our connection to the divine and to one another. Joining Rabbi Cantor George Mordecai is a talented group of musicians, storytellers and others.
