A spiritual, innovative service where our prayers are enhanced with musical instruments, contemporary and ancient melodies and stories. Gathered together with the community in prayer and song, we lift one another beyond the cares and pressures of the week to the sanctuary of sacred time: Shabbat.
This service is now in-person and also live-streamed each Shabbat. See below to watch the service or view on YouTube.

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