Shabbat at Sinai

Shabbat is the high point of the week at Congregation Sinai, when the community gathers together to pray, learn, eat, sing, and catch up with each other.  We love welcoming guests.  Please join us to experience the warmth, friendliness, and ruach (spirit) of the Sinai community. 

We gather weekly in the sanctuary on Saturday mornings.  In addition, the following programs take place monthly:

After services, everyone joins together in the social hall to enjoy a (usually lavish) Shabbat lunch.

We also hold occasional Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat services, which are followed by a community dinner and/or preceded by hors d’ouevres.  See our calendar for details.

The dress code on Shabbat is best described as “business casual.”  While clothing should reflect the holiness of Shabbat, Sinai’s culture is informal and accepting.  Most importantly, come as you are.  We would rather spend Shabbat with you than worry about how you are dressed.  On a typical Shabbat morning, men’s clothing ranges from slacks and a polo shirt to suit and tie.  Women can be found wearing dresses, skirts, or slacks.  Children are encouraged to dress a little nicer than they do for school.

In keeping with Jewish tradition, all males are asked to cover their heads in the sanctuary and chapel on Shabbat.  Females who choose are encouraged to cover their heads as well.
