Shabbat

Shabbat at Temple Emanuel is a unique and meaningful experience.  Our community joins together in worship and song.

We welcome Shabbat with a Kabbalat Shabbat service Friday evenings at 7:30 pm.  Observing Shabbat with this ritual makes it a personal and meaningful experience.  Kabbalat Shabbat, the “receiving of Shabbat”, centers on the theme that Shabbat is the bride of Israel descending upon the Jewish people. Our service is then followed by an oneg with light refreshments hosted by members of Sisterhood.

On the First Friday night of the month, we have a fun Family Shabbat service.  Both children and adults enjoy singing along with Mike Blum on guitar as we celebrate Shabbat with songs taken from both modern and traditional sources.  This service is designed to engage community members of all ages with lots of singing, clapping and joy!

Together, let us Serve G-d with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.

Shabbat mornings are special at Temple Emanuel. We begin with the time honored tradition of Torah study at 9:30. Newcomers are always welcome to join in fellowship as well as interesting and lively discussion.  Services begin at 10:30. Afterwards we invite you enjoy a light Kiddush.

Mi Sheberach

Prayer for Healing

At services each Shabbat we offer a Mi Sheberach prayer for all those who are ill. Being in the thoughts and prayers of others can give great comfort and support. If you would like to have a prayer offered for yourself, a member of your family, or a friend, please let us know. Contact the Temple.
