Continue your High Holy Days experience with Shabbat Shuva on Saturday, September 15th at 10:30 am in the Harry M. Tonkin Memorial Chapel. This year's Shabbat Shuva morning service will be a Kavanah Shabbat service, designed to help you explore a deeper relationship with the Divine.  Kavanah Shabbat is a joyous service that blends traditional communal prayer and chanting of the weekly Torah parasha with song, Jewish chants, silent prayer, and moments of meditation and reflection.  


Study Torah from the Beginning! 
Saturday, October 6


Every Shabbat morning, a group of spirited students of all ages gathers to study the weekly Torah portion. The conversation is always insightful and fun as we explore our ancient texts and find contemporary meaning.

On Saturday, October 6, at 9:00 am we begin at the beginning with Torah portion Bereshit. This is a great time to join the conversation.

No experience necessary, just a desire to learn. 

Torah study is every Saturday at 9:00 am year-round in the Harry M. Tonkin Chapel.
