Ritual Life

The rituals of our communal life encompass, of course, weekly and seasonal worship and celebrations. Please join us for our up-lifting and nourishing davenning/worship and our family oriented holiday events.

Ritual also includes milestone events in our personal lives--as we mark the moments which give texture and depth to our path. We invite you to honor and celebrate your personal milestones in sacred community. From baby-naming to funeral and memorial services, we support each other along the way. Rabbi Andrea can work with you to create a ceremony that marks your special milestone in a meaningful way. Give yourself the gift of this support.

Traditional Service, Kiddush and Torah Study

Shabbat Morning is a time to focus, calm and support ourselves for the work we do in the world. Services with inspiration from the torah reading will be followed by fellowship and kiddush.

After Kiddush, stay for a class on the thought of Rabbi Kalanymous Kalman Shapira, rebbe of the Warsaw Ghetto and author of a book translated by Rabbi Andrea.
