Contemplative Services- 

How can we pay better attention to living our lives with intention? You are invited to make time for yourself at our Contemplative Service, which is designed to slow the pace of our lives down in order to listen to what emerges from the silence. In this service, we will set aside time for mindfulness meditation, contemplative study, singing, and prayer. We will focus our attention on opening our hearts and minds. Everyone is welcome; dress as you would like. Just be sure to bring an open mind. 

We will begin promptly at 10:00am so please arrive a few minutes early to minimize interruptions. The service will conclude by 11:15am. After the service, those who would like to remain in the synagogue are welcome to continue to sit quietly in the Weiner lounge, join the rest of the congregation for the sermon and the remainder of the shabbat morning service (11:15am-12:00pm), and/or join for the kiddush luncheon at 12:00pm.

Singing as Spiritual Practice

Music has deepened our ability to pray from the depths of our souls, sometimes with words and sometimes with melodies alone. This group will learn how singing can itself be a Jewish spiritual practice, and we will practice different techniques that help unleash the power of communal singing. Everyone is welcome. No prior knowledge required. Facilitated by Rabbi David A. Schuck and Jack Klebanow.
