Shabbat At Barnert: The Perfect Formula for Weekly Rejuvenation!
Judaism gives you a weekly break from the chaos. It's called Shabbat. Join us on for Shabbat morning worship, too on Saturdays at 10 am (check calendar). Even when we are celebrating a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, please don’t feel that you’re intruding. We are extended family, and your presence adds support.
February 5 at 7 pm: Shabbat Service followed by Potluck Supper.
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. On Friday, February 19, 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 encourage Shabbat dinner and/or dessert, family or communal, in host congregants' homes. Barnert Temple leaders will facilitate Shabbat dinner invitations as requested.
Share these Shabbat Blessings with your family and friends: Candle Blessings; Blessing Over the Challah; Erev Shabbat Blessing over Wine; Shabbat Blessing Sheet; Blessing Over the Wine (short version). MORE
