Friday Shabbat Services

Friday night services are the center of Shir Tikvah's spiritual and communal life, a weekly time-out in our lives to refresh and reboot, to slow down and recalibrate. Looking out onto Wedge Pond at sunset sets the mood. Looking inward resets the spirit. Our shoulders can un-hunch, and we can allow ourselves to contemplate "who we are and what we are”— words from a prayer we often sing. 

Regular Shabbat services begin at 7:30 pm and end at 9, but check the calendar because sometimes there are blips. Services are followed by an oneg—a friendly gathering to connect and have a bite to eat—especially if you're a new member or a visitor. It's a very nice way to end the evening.

Family Shabbat and Potluck

These monthly family-oriented services begin at an earlier time and are perfect for sleepyheads of all ages. There's a potluck at 6:00 pm, services begin at 6:30, and everyone is on their way home by 7. It's exuberant celebration of Shabbat and a wonderful way to end the week. Regular services then begin at 7:30 pm.  See the temple calendar for dates.

Saturday Shabbat Services

Shabbat services are held when there is a bar/bat mitzvah ceremony on Saturdays, either at 10 am or at 4 pm. These are community services and open to all members and guests. Check the calendar for dates.

Havdalah Together

Havdalah services for the entire community are held late Saturday afternoons, for about an hour, several times a year. Filled with song, sweetness, and light, we say goodbye to Shabbat and hello to the new week. Check the dates for Havdalah Together.

Shabbat for the Very Young

Our monthly Tot Shabbats are lively mini-Shabbats geared for families with children under six, with a focus on an upcoming Jewish holiday.
