Contemplation Night

Saturday, August 12th (7:45 p.m. — 8:45 p.m.), with havdalah

What are Contemplation Nights? These are evenings of meditation in our sanctuary, when we sing, read, breathe, remember loved ones we have lost, pray for healing, sit together in silence, and listen to instrumental meditations.





Elul Sermon-in-Song

Our Kol Nidre cellist Larry Figg will be one of our special guest musicians at the Elul Sermon-in-Song, on Friday evening, August 25th, at 6:30 p.m.

On this first Shabbat of Elul, we are all invited to sing the magnificent music of this season alongside our Adult Choir, Women's Group, Men's Group, small ensembles, and a full bimah team. Some of the pieces during the sermon-in-song segment will only be shared on this one night, and not at any other service this year.

Rabbi Javier Cattapan will also introduce to us for the first time on this night the new prayer book for the month of Elul and Selichot, called Mishkan HaLev. This is is a companion to Mishkan HaNefesh. Invite your friends and family, and come ready to start preparing your hearts and souls for the High Holy Days together with your community.
