Shabbat Services

Communal worship and personal prayer are at the core of our congregational life. Recognizing this, we offer Shabbat services at both our Glazer Campus and at the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Campus. Whether you are drawn by song and celebration or are looking for reflection and meditation, we invite you to explore our service and worship opportunities.
