Shabbat

Our Kabbalat Shabbat service is full of singing and camaraderie and begins at 7:30 p.m. Regularly, we hold our Friday Night Live service.  Also, about once a month during the warmer months, we hold “Shabbat in the Park” starting at 5:45 p.m.

Weekly Saturday morning Shabbat services begin at 9 a.m. with Kiddush at approximately noon.

Shabbat Mincha follows Kiddush at 12:30pm (or 30 minutes following the conclusion of Musaf).  Motzei Shabbat Ma’ariv and Havdallah begin just after shkiah/sunset on Saturday evenings.

Tot Shabbat:

  • Tot Shabbat – Up to age 5 with caretaker (no drop-offs)                                                      10:30-11:15 a.m. Every Shabbat morning (Check calendar for exceptions for holidays and school breaks.)

Minyan Shelanu

Minyan Shelanu is a weekly Service led by Ori Salzberg, with occasional special guest leaders, for school-aged children and their families held every Shabbat morning from 10:30 – 11:15am in the Chapel during the school year. Participate and sing-along with familiar prayers, niggunim (wordless melodies) and more. Check the calendar for dates.

Minyan is held every morning and evening at Shearith Israel and evening shiva minyanim are arranged in homes as required. Learn more here. As service times change by season, for the most up-to-date schedule information, please consult our calendar
