Shabbat Morning Study & Song

We're starting the new year with a different format for Shabbat morning!  Join us!

10 a.m. Reading & Discussing the weekly Torah portion.  How does it relate to our lives, today?

There will be a separate adult & children's discussion. 

11 a.m. Singing & Music Jam! All ages!

Bring instruments and your favorite Jewish songs (and lyrics to pass around if there are a lot of words), or just a willingness to open your heart as you lift up your voice in song, and use your hands to add rhythm and musicality to our Shabbat gathering!

12:00 pm    Potluck Veggie Kiddush/Lunch & Schmoozing


- Clothing to be comfortable outside if the weather permits

-  A vegetarian dish to share for potluck kiddish lunch - organic, seasonal offerings from home gardens and local farms especially appreciated. Fish and dairy also welcome.

So we can have an idea of how many people are coming, please RSVP to Rabbi Josh: or call 508.484.1631. 


What can I expect Shabbat morning?

Our gatherings are always non-judgmental, inclusive and welcoming of any and all levels of Hebrew and Jewish literacy!  No previous experience necessary.

We encounter the weekly Torah portion by creating space for meaningful discussion of those things that really matter to us, in conversation with the vastness of centuries-old Jewish conversation. 

Finally, we close with blessings over the Shabbat meal: motzi (on bread) and kiddush (on grape juice).  If you would like to bring food to create a fuller meal, please do so!  (You are also invited to bring your own plate/utensils/cup if you are staying for a meal).

We welcome you to come for all or any part of the experience.
