Our extra-musical service, which emphasizes melody over the spoken word, includes instruments that will enhance and invigorate the musical experience. ​  Familiar and new melodies offer a new take on our liturgy and aim to create an enriching Shabbat experience.  Remaining dates are listed below.

Ma'ariv Services, 6:15 p.m.
2021-22 dates TBD
Unless otherwise noted, most services feature Chai Notes - our Volunteer Musical Ensemble.

An early and abbreviated service with a more informal atmosphere. Families are encouraged to participate in this unique opportunity for our generations to mingle together. At 5:45 p.m. we have a pre-service oneg so worshipers can greet each other and enjoy a nosh together. The Chai Notes, our adult volunteer ensemble, add their wonderful talents to our service.

Shabbat of Simcha, 7:30 p.m.
As we welcome Shabbat, we will also celebrate our simchas (celebrations). Such sharing of our lives deepens our connections with one another.  There will be an opportunity during the service to acknowledge those observing a birthday, or wishing to recognize another happy occasion.

Chavurah Service, 7:30 p.m.

In the intimate setting of our Chavurah services we celebrate community and strengthen connections. Guided each month by Merri Lovinger Arian (who teaches liturgical arts at the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music at HUC-JIR) in collaboration with a volunteer lay leaders, our Chavurah services are warm, welcoming, and spiritually uplifting  Our service leaders carefully craft a prayer experience that intertwines text and music to engage the heart, the mind and the soul of everyone who attends.
