In keeping with our values around worship, we are continuing to host Shabbat Services and Torah Study through online platforms. We look forward to being together for Shabbat in person again soon. For now, the building is closed to the public even for worship services, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19.

Shabbat is the cornerstone of our communal experience. It is our weekly opportunity to gather as a community to pray, study, gain inspiration, and to engage socially. The Talmud says that there are seventy faces to the Torah—and we believe that there are at least as many access points to Shabbat. We look forward to seeing you on Shabbat!
