Rain or shine!
(open to all regardless of vaccination status)
Join us THIS FRIDAY for Kabbalat "Shabbat in the Lot" with Amichai and our rabbis.

Once you register, you are a confirmed attendee! Once 40 households have registered, the registration will be closed.

Please respect the directions of our lot attendants, security staff, and medical task force personnel, all of whom are working hard to keep us feeling safe. Masks must be worn in our parking lot when moving to or between our outdoor pods. Once seated in their outdoor pods, people may remove masks.

If you are among the 40 households to attend, when you arrive (by 6:35 PM please), you will be directed to park your car as you enter the lot, and then to set up your own chairs in specifically marked spots in the main part of the lot. We will exit the lot via the Chapel Court exit in a carefully directed order.

The service will also be broadcast via Zoom if you prefer to stay at home to enjoy Kabbalat Shabbat!
June 12 - 10:00 AM

(open only to fully vaccinated members)
In-person Shabbat services will resume on a weekly basis starting this week!

Join us on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM for services, Torah Reading, and teaching from the rabbis.

Please respect the directions of greeters, security staff, and medical task force personnel, all of whom are working hard to keep us feeling safe.

Upon arrival you will be given a laminated card with your pod number (and a corresponding map of the sanctuary on the back). Please be seated in your assigned seats.

Masks must be worn at all times while in the synagogue building.

The service will also be broadcast via a Zoom webinar if you prefer to stay at home to enjoy!
