Embrace the Spirit of Shabbat
Welcome to the Shabbat Services page of Solomon Schechter Day School, where we celebrate the beauty of Jewish traditions and foster a strong community spirit. Our Shabbat services are designed to bring together individuals of all ages, providing a meaningful and engaging experience for everyone.
What is Shabbat?
Shabbat, known as the Jewish Sabbath, is a sacred day of rest and worship that begins at sundown on Friday and ends at nightfall on Saturday. It is a time to detach from the everyday routines and focus on spiritual rejuvenation, family bonding, and connecting with our faith.
Our Vibrant Community
At Solomon Schechter Day School, we take immense pride in our diverse and welcoming community. Our Shabbat services provide the perfect opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share a common heritage and a passion for Jewish traditions.
Experience Meaningful Worship
Our Shabbat services are thoughtfully crafted to offer a blend of traditional rituals, uplifting melodies, and inspiring teachings. Led by our knowledgeable clergy and supported by an amazing team, our services create an atmosphere where participants can connect with their spirituality on a deeper level.
We offer a variety of Shabbat services to cater to different preferences and needs. Whether you are seeking a family-friendly experience, a contemplative service, or an interactive study session, we have something for everyone. Below is a brief overview of our regular service schedule:
