Shabbat b'Yachad

Once a Month on Fridays, 5:30-6:15pm

What is Shabbat b'Yachad? Simply put, it’s a raucous, rambunctious, noisy half-hour of prayerful fun with Rabbi Mara, Cantor Jenna, and friends. Your kids can’t stay in their seats? No problem. It’s all in keeping with the singing, jokes, story-telling, and blessings that leave everyone filled with Shabbat spirit and wearing a big grin.

Shabbat b'Yachad is a delightful entry point, both for children who are first discovering prayer and congregational worship, and for parents who have been distanced from it. It’s an open door for all to step into the ritual life of the congregation in a way that is immediately engaging and satisfying. And, for interfaith families, it can be an excellent introduction to Judaism and Jewish life.
