"More than the Jewish people has kept the Sabbath, the Sabbath has kept the Jewish people."

-Ahad Ha-Am, Jewish writer

Most people associate holidays with yearly festivities, but in Judaism, one holiday happens every week - the Sabbath.
This holiday, known in Hebrew as Shabbat and in Yiddish as Shabbos, is fundamental to Jewish life. The Sabbath has truly become a unifying influence for Jews all over the world.

Shabbat at Temple Shalom is a one-of-a-kind and profound experience. On Friday nights and Saturday mornings, our Sanctuary fills up as the congregation and our welcomed guests participate in prayer and music. Our Shabbat services are also livestreamed from the Sanctuary. 

Our Sanctuary full of people for Shabbat morning service. Everyone stands as the ark is open.

Friday night service (during season starting September 10)* -  7:30pm

Friday night service (during the summer)* -  6:00pm

Saturday morning service -  10:00 am
