Friday Evenings

Kabbalat Shabbat

Nothing puts the pressures of the work week in the rear-view mirror – and ushers in the Sabbath like the queen she is – more warmly and beautifully than a song-filled, soulful Kabbalat Shabbat at Shomrei Emunah. 

Services begin most Fridays at about 6:30 p.m. and last around an hour. Check the calendar for up-to-date start time.

Shabbat and Me

Once a month during the school year, Shomrei holds a special early-evening Friday service geared for preschoolers and their parents, to welcome our newest, youngest congregants and help them begin to soak up the ABC’s of the Sabbath eve.

Services begin at 5 and last 45 minutes and include candle lighting, kiddush, challah and healthy snacks. Check the calendar for the next scheduled Shabbat and Me service.

Taste of Shabbat

A signature event at Shomrei, our not-quite-monthly Taste of Shabbat dinners combine the best of Kabbalat Shabbat with a delicious potluck dairy and vegetarian supper at the home of a different congregant each time around (though hosts may also elect to hold the event at Shomrei to spare their gleaming hardwoods).

It’s a fantastic, cross-generational, family-friendly and singles-friendly opportunity to schmooze with friends, meet new members of the synagogue, welcome the Sabbath and enjoy a bounty of good food.

There is no better, more enjoyable way to get to know your fellow congregants than by attending a Taste of Shabbat.

Check the calendar for the next scheduled Taste of Shabbat.
