Friday, November 9th: Pride Shabbat

  • Traditional Kabbalat Shabbat Services with R. Adam Naftalin Kelman — In this spirited and lively Kabbalat Shabbat service, we will bring in Shabbat with joyous melodies and celebrate the beginning of Shabbat.
  • Painting the Parsha with Bria Rosenberg — Using this week’s Torah portion (Toldot) as inspiration, we will bring a scene from the story to life by painting it on canvas and exploring the story from an artistic and environmental lens. No prior experience with painting required.
  • Musical Shabbat Service with Matt Kolbert — will be leading a musical Shabbat service, with tunes from the reform & conservative movements, as well as some camp-style songs. As it is Pride Shabbat, there will be some queer themes tied in, but this service is for everyone!
