Shabbat Under the Stars

During the summer, we bring the relaxed, casual feel of long, sunny days to our Friday night services. Taking advantage of our beautiful grounds at both Temple and JBSC, we hold Shabbat Under the Stars outside (weather permitting, of course) once a month at each location from June through August.

Upcoming services in our Shabbat Under the Stars series:

Friday, August 30, 6:00 pm at Temple

Preview Mishkan HaNefesh
Join us for our final Shabbat Under the Stars of the summer and get a preview of the new prayer book we will be using during the High Holy Days at WHC. The service will incorporate Mishkan HaNefesh's style and substance through readings that our rabbis will weave into the service.

Stay after the service for a casual Shabbat dinner where Rabbi Shankman will explore with us the pages of this new machzor — including its updated translations, readings, poetry, and easily accessible transliteration. Dinner costs $12 per person or $30 for up to four family members. Please click here to RSVP for dinner.
