Worship and personal prayer are at the core of our congregational life. We offer weekly Shabbat services at both our Glazer and Irmas campuses. Whether you are drawn by song and celebration or reflection and meditation, we invite you to explore our service and worship opportunities.
Unless otherwise noted, there is always a 6:00 p.m. Friday evening Shabbat service at Irmas campuses and a 7:00 p.m. Friday evening Shabbat service at Glazer campus, Saturday morning Torah study at the Glazer campus at 9:00 a.m., and Saturday morning Shabbat services at one or both locations. Please see the Shabbat service calendar for details. When there is no service, it will appear on the calendar as "No Service" and the campus name.
Soul Sounds Shabbat
Soul Sounds Shabbat is a joyous, musical, celebration designed to bring beautiful music and delight to enhance the Shabbat experience.
The service is driven by extraordinary musicians who offer an unusual blend of traditional melodies with the best of contemporary synagogue music, all dressed in a rich tapestry of instrumental and vocal music.
Rabbi Joel Nickerson and Cantor Lisa Peicott introduce Koleinu - a soulful new prayer experience with an extraordinary band of musicians, to welcome in Shabbat with music, prayer, and community. If you loved Nefesh services, you’ll want to check out Koleinu for an inspiring, transcendent, and uplifting Kabbalat Shabbat.
After a week's worth of work, there's no finer place to rest a weary soul, connect with God and community, and reap the benefits of joyful song and meaningful prayer.
Hip Hop Shabbat
A contemporary and creative spin on Shabbat with a service featuring hip-hop, R&B, and EDM (electronic dance music) including samples of music by Dr. Dre, the Fugees, Usher, P. Diddy and more.
Rabbi Joel Nickerson and songleader Jason Mesches will lead this eclectic, high-energy and mind-expanding service. Open to all ages and especially for those who want to experience Shabbat services in a completely new way.
RSVP and Order Dinner
After our wildly successful premiere Rooftop Ruach, Rabbi Joel Nickerson and Cantor Lisa Peicott are back with our final Rooftop Ruach Shabbat Service of the summer. Ruach, the Hebrew word that can be translated as a spiritual wind, speaks to the heart of the human soul.
As the sun sets over the Hollywood hills, Rooftop Ruach begins with a family-friendly service and concludes with dinner and entertainment, making for an exciting new spin on an age-old tradition. Bring yourself and the whole family as we say "Shabbat Shalom" from our beautiful rooftop!
Chefs Table Shabbat
