Shabbat at Sherith Israel begins with a beautiful, Carlbach-style Kabbalat Shabbat service in the heart of Music City.
Once a month, the Shul hosts a Friday night dinner that is open to everyone, though reservations are required.
Shabbat morning services are filled with kavanah, singing, occasional dancing, as well as inspiring divrei Torah from our rabbis and cantor. For younger children, we offer babysitting with a snack and story time, and for children in grades K-4, we offer the "Cocoa Club", where they can celebrate Shabbat together, learn about the Parsha through games and skits, and enjoy a great snack. Cocoa Club meets at 10:30 am every Saturday. Following davening, each week, all are welcome to join the community at our catered Kiddush Luncheon. Many folks stay after kiddush to shmooze, take a walk in the nearby parks, or visit the elderly.
Typically, two classes take place on Shabbat. There is an early-bird class at 8 AM and a later 1 PM class after our Kiddush luncheon.
Shabbat concludes with Mincha, Seudat Shlishit, Maariv, and Havdallah.
