SHABBAT


Shabbat Morning

Open the doors to your heart and soul with prayer, reflection, and study. Rejoice as children join the congregation becoming B’nei Mitzvah. Sing along with our lay leaders and Cantor. Engage with friends and community members. Learn from the Rabbi or special guest through a dynamic sermon. Come home to the Kol Shofar family and celebrate the joy, meaning, peace, and enduring wisdom of our Jewish tradition. 
Every Saturday morning: 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

On select Shabbat mornings, join us for our Meditation Circle: Shabbat Sit. Led by congregants Larry and Diane Yermack, this Saturday morning experience explores silence and connection to spirituality through simply being present. Using a technique called mindfulness meditation, you will find yourself slowing down, calming your mind, and cultivating awareness, compassion, and Jewish wisdom. Whether you are new to meditation or have many years of experience, you are warmly welcome. After the sit, please come join the congregation for Torah study, sermon, concluding prayers, and our community Kiddush lunch after services.
