7:30 P.M.Refreshing the Soul - Shabbat Meditation Service
Meditative Services incorporate meditative elements into our worship and focus on creating a peaceful and holy space. Shabbat peace is sometimes just what we need in our busy, connected lives. Escape the grind, the hustle and bustles, and listen deeply. We invite you to explore your spirituality, and come to ignite and share your inner light.
The Oneg Shabbat is sponsored by Doris Robin, in honor of the yahrzeit of her mother, Lillie Robin, and Doris' birthday. Doris invites everyone to come and enjoy.
