Shabbat is the soul of Temple Ner Tamid. Singing and listening to words of Torah, Shabbat is our unique opportunity to draw closer to God and each other.
Erev Shabbat services begin on Friday evenings at 8pm, except for the last Shabbat of each month when we gather for Kabbalat Shabbat at 6:30pm. For families with small children, a monthly Tot Shabbat is held at 6pm on the first Shabbat of each month.
Shabbat morning worship begins at 10am and concludes by noon. On the third Shabbat of each month, members of the congregation gather for the Casual Minyan, a wonderfully informal and participatory service with an in-depth discussion of the weekly Torah portion. Two times per year the entire community comes together for Wake Up Shabbat - an innovative, participatory and musical celebration. It includes separate study opportunities for adults and children, a joyous service and plenty of food. On the second Shabbat of each month there is a family service at 10:30 am, Shalom Shabbat, for families with small children up to grade 2. This service teaches the children about Shabbat and Jewish Holidays through song,dance and stories.
Each month on Rosh Chodesh there is a meaningful service and discussion for our female congregants, age 12 and older beginning at 7:00 pm. They explore spirituality, religious education, ritual, music, art and more.
During the summer months of July and August Shabbat services are led by members of the congregation - Friday evenings at 6:30pm and Saturday mornings at 10am.
