“More than Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jews.”
– Ahad Ha’am
Join us for Shabbat, the centerpiece of Jewish life. A time to rest, celebrate and rejuvenate with family, friends and community. Experience the warmth and tradition weekly at L’Chaim Center. Newcomers are ALWAYS welcome.
FRIDAY NIGHT: The pre-Shabbat celebration starts with traditional cholent, kugel and conversation an hour before sundown, when our services begin. Make a L’Chaim and welcome the Sabbath with Kabbalat Shabbat, a traditional service filled with song and much joy.
SATURDAY: Traditional Shabbat services begin at 9:15am and include an optional class with Ali on the weekly Torah portion that anchors your week ahead. Kiddush lunch follows at around 11:30am and it is full of good food and intelligent conversation with a welcoming community.
SHABBAT MORNING SCHEDULE:
- 9:15 AM Shabbat Services led by Rabbi David

Join us for any part of our Shabbat celebration each week or stay for the entire time. We hope to see you soon.
