Shabbat Inside Out: A Family and Community Celebration of Shabbat!

Shabbat Inside Out is an exciting opportunity to experience Shabbat joyfully and refreshingly, with old friends and new.  During the fourth Friday of the month beginning in October, we will shift from Temple-centered Shabbat worship to an off-site, socially oriented Shabbat observance, with dinner and dessert, ritual blessings, and the potentail for study.  We will encourage Shabbat dinner and/or dessert, family or communal, off-site either in host congregants' homes or in local restuarant venues.  Barnert Temple leaders will facilitate Shabbat dinner invitations as requested. 

On the fourth Saturday of each month beginning in October, we are offering a variety of Shabbat morning opportunities, running parallel to one antoher.  Adult sessions  include: Torah Study, Shabbat Yoga and a Minyan.  Youth sessions are run by Rabbi Steiner and Sara Losch.  We will join together at the end of our sessions for a communal Kiddush

This new model, with both Friday night and Saturday morning, offers us opportunities to more fully embrace, engage and enjoy Shabbat!
