Shabbat is a time to rest and renew. It is a tranquil, transformational time that is healthful to the body and soul.
A typical Friday Night Service at Temple begins at 7:30 p.m. We worship in English and Hebrew (via transliteration if needed); speaking and listening; singing and in silence. We are inspired by our Clergy, and their topical sermons, we seek to find Shalom to end to our week with spirit and warmth.
During our Services, there are opportunities to learn, to hear of birthdays and significant anniversaries, to pray for those who are ill, and to remember loved ones we have lost.
Then there is time to socialize during the Oneg Shabbat, where we spend time with old friends and meet new ones.
B’nai Mitzvah Ceremonies
On many Saturday mornings at 10:30 am there is a Shabbat Worship Service in the sanctuary in which a Bar or Bat Mitzvah student inspires us with an insightful D’var Torah (speech about the Torah Portion), beautiful chanting or reading from the Torah, and the recitation of the Haftarah (some verses from the Prophets that relate in subject matter to the Torah Portion).
Celebrate Shabbat at Home
Celebrating Shabbat at home with family and friends creates a warm and wonderful end to your week. Saying or singing blessings over family, candles, wine and challah helps make it sacred.Enjoy this guide Enjoy this guide from Larchmont Temple, NY. Shabbat Shalom!
