Learn about this week’s Torah portion

From Aish.com


Our weekly Friday night and Shabbat Morning services and classes add an energy and ruach (spirit) to the traditional prayers that cannot be found anywhere else. We sing, we dance, we explain, and we make sure everyone is “on the same page”. Come with an open heart and you are sure to be inspired.

Children’s Programming

Our expanded and refreshed Shabbat children’s program is for children ages 4-12. We combine fun activities with prayer and discussions on the Torah portion. The program opens at 9:30 every Shabbat morning.


Our Shabbat morning program is topped off with a delicious Kiddush with salads, treats and L’chaims for those who would like. Kiddush is available to be sponsored every week in honor of your personal celebration, in memory of a loved one, or just to let us know that you appreciate what we are doing!
