Interior Sanctuary


Worship and personal prayer are at the core of our congregational life. We offer weekly Shabbat services at our Glazer, Irmas, and University 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 6:30 p.m. Friday evening Shabbat service at Irmas Campus, University Campus or Glazer campus.

We are also now offering our online Taste of Shabbat, the 'greatest hits' of a Friday night service in no more than 15 minutes. Please see the Shabbat service calendar for details. 


Kabbalat Shabbat

Factor Chapel at Glazer Campus

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.


Cantor Lisa Peicott and Rabbi Joel Nickerson

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.


Rooftop Ruach

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!
