Adon Olam

You are our Eternal God, who reigned before any being had been created;
when all was done according to Your will, the You were called Ruler.

And after all ceases to be, You alone will rule in majeswty.
You have been, are yet, and will be in glory.

And You are One; none other can compare to or consort with You.
You are without beginning, without end. To You belong power and dominion.

And You are my God, my living Redeemer, my Rock in times of trouble and distress.
You are my standard bearer and my refuge, my benefactor when I call on You.

Into Your hands I entrust my spirit, when I sleep and when I wake,
and with my spirit my body also; Adonai is with me and I shall not fear.

 

RABBI'S TISCH AND HAVDALAH



Several times a year, late on a Shabbat afternoon, Rabbi Meir Feldman and/or Rabbi Tara Feldman leads a Rabbi's Tisch, followed by a Havdalah service.

"Tisch" means "table," and although we Havdalah Setdon't always literally sit around a table, adults from our congregation do gather 'round to partake in discussion and learning.

The Tisch is followed by a brief but moving Havdalah service as we mark the end of Shabbat and usher in the new week.

                                  

TOT SHABBAT



Young children and their parents and grandparents are invited to join us for our Tot Shabbat experience. All families are invited to come each month as we celebrate Shabbat. Following our songs and stories, we enjoy bagels, fruit and other snacks as we play, get to know each other and create unique works of art. Tot Shabbat runs from 10:45 am to 11:45 am.
