We invite you to end your week and welcome Shabbat with us!

We were so excited to add Rabbi Schmelkin to our clergy team this past summer. Tonight, we’ll make it official with her installation.


At 6:00 pm and again after the service: Have something to eat (to tide you over or as your dinner), a drink (we offer a full bar, plus non-alcoholic options), and connect with your community.

Kids are always welcome, and they’ll be able to eat before (and after) the service, play Connect 4, Jenga, and cornhole games, create at a coloring table, and do other arts & crafts activities.

6:30 pm – Our Shabbat service begins.

After the service – Stay for dessert, or more dinner and drinks!

Special thanks to our musicians who add so much to the service. We wouldn’t have them without the support of the Irene & Abe Pollin Music Program Initiative.

This week’s featured menu items include:

From Lebanese Taverna

  • Dolmas
  • Falafel
  • Samosas
  • Shakshouka …and more!

Desserts from Lebanese Taverna and Baked by Yael

Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten-Free Options Available
