Rabbi Sholklapper, Cantor Waghalter, and post-bar/bat mitzvah students will lead a shortened, interactive, and informative Shabbat morning service.

Magevet singers will join in the congregation adding wonderful harmonies to our prayers. POTLUCK SHABBAT LUNCH - 11:45 am Do you have a special family recipe you'd be excited to share? Bring your favorite vegetarian/dairy dish (family recipe or not) for a potluck lunch after services. An optional informal song session and board games will follow.
 
HAVDALAH - 6:30 pm
Did someone say wine and cheese? We’ll end our Shabbat with an adults-only wine-and-cheese (and chocolate of course) Havdalah, the service that bids farewell to Shabbat with braided candle, wine, and fragrant spices. Magevet will lead the service and regale us with one last taste of their vibrant song. Complimentary babysitting will be available on Saturday evening from 6:15-8 pm.
