Friday night. Instead of praying at shul, we'll gather at the home of
David and Grisel Levene in Dublin.
Feel free to bring a light refreshment for the oneg.

Saturday, June 22nd at 10:00 am - Shabbat Morning Service
Shabbat morning services begin at 10:00am where we will have a chance to
get up close and personal with our sacred Torah. It will be a time to
hear members of our congregation chant the traditional words as they've
been sung for centuries.
This is also an opportunity for those who are less versed in the Shabbat
morning service to receive honors and learn how to perform the various
ritual activities in an intimate and low pressure setting.
It is especially helpful to those who will be having or attending a bar
or bat mitzvah ceremony, and can be a learning and spiritual experience
A light dairy lunch to follow.
Sunday, June 23rd at 9:00 am - Highway Clean-Up

distance away to our adopted highway site. We need ten volunteers to
make this a success! We'll be done by 10:30am.
Please wear wear closed toe shoes, long pants and long sleeve shirts and
don't forget to bring gloves!

Friday, June 28th at 7:00 pm - Shir Shabbat Service
This song-filled service is co-led by Rabbi Loewenthal and our musical
director, Dr. Elaine (Lainee) Broad Ginsberg. Music by Jeff Klepper and
other composers of the Reform Movement is featured, along with Lainee’s
flowing piano accompaniment. Some prayers are shortened or skipped to
make time for more singing.
An oneg will follow services.
Friday, July 5th at 7:00 pm - Short Shabbat Service
Once a month we go for brevity in a service that is accessible to
beginners yet still full of tradition. Prayers are often “sampled” rather
than sung through, and there is more English language singing and reading
than in our other services. Services finish within an hour and there is
more time to schmooze afterwards at the oneg following services.
Friday, July 12th at 7:00 pm - Traditional Shabbat Service
A straightforward Friday night service including all the psalms and
standard prayers. Most of the prayers are in Hebrew, but the Dvar Torah
(sermon) and other comments are in English. Knowledgeable congregants
offer to be “guides” sitting next to and assisting those with less
Hebrew language facility or less familiarity with the prayers.
An oneg will follow services.
