Progressive Shabbat Service

The prayers of this service are conducted in both Hebrew and English and are led by one of our congregation's rabbis.

The services are enhanced with the music of the Emanuel Ensemble. A portion of the Torah is read and a sermon given about the content of the weekly parasha.

Shabbat Live!

Enhancing Prayer with Music. 
Shabbat Live is an innovative Progressive Shabbat service where prayer is enhanced with musical instruments, beautiful melodies, creative readings and stories. During the hour-long service, we are transported on a journey, moving from the chaos and pressures of the work week to the joy, rest and peace of Shabbat. Gathered together with community in prayer and song, we will lift one another beyond the cares of the week, its stresses and burdens, to the holy sanctuary in time that is the Shabbat.

Prayer

Judaism is not just a religion, but also our multi-faceted way of life that can find expression in a multitude of ways; our synagogue is more than just a place of prayer, but a pluralist, communitarian hub where Jews live their Judaism in all its aspects.  Judaism, the way of life of Jews, can be lived through prayer, learning, and myriad forms of engagement and connection (social justice opportunities, social functions for all ages, Netzer activities, Israel advocacy and more).
