Shabbat Services

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. This week in particular, we come together to #ShowUpForShabbat as we welcome our day of rest in solidarity with other Jews around the world. 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.

Congregational Shabbat Dinner

Once a month, we gather for dinner at 6:30 PM on Friday, followed by an evening service at 7:30. Check the calendar for upcoming congregational dinner dates. Be sure to RSVP so we have food and seats for you! Dinner is $10 per person ages 4 and up. 

Subscriptions are available for our congregational dinners, including Purim, for $100 per person, ages 4 and up ($120 value). A subscription gives you an automatic reservation—no need to call in each month. Sign up at www.kamii.org/RSVP.
 

Saturday Morning

9:00 AM | Torah Study
Please join us for our in-depth study of the weekly parasha (Torah portion) led by our clergy. This class draws on modern interpretation, classic commentary, and midrash (rabbinic tales) to elucidate contemporary meaning from our sacred text. No prior knowledge of Hebrew necessary.
10:00 AM | Shabbat Morning Service
An informal, participatory service that includes a reading from the weekly Torah portion and the haftarah.
11:15 AM | Shabbat Learning
Following worship, we frequently have an opportunity to learn together with a visiting speaker. Check our calendar for details.

A kiddush with grape juice, challah, and desserts follows Shabbat morning services.
