Join us for Shabbat

"More than the Jewish people has kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jewish people.” - Ahad Ha’am


No matter where we are, Shabbat can be the connection, centering and “deep breath” we need, enabling joy, reflection, and the affirmation of community. Join us online for spirited, meaningful, and accessible worship and inspiration. We will be using Mishkan Tefilah for our Shabbat Evening services (6:15 pm) and Saturday Morning Shabbat Experiences (9:15 am). You can easily access our services online via FacebookYouTube and Streamspot. You can also access the Mishkan T'filah for the House of Mourning book which contains resources for Shivah and other mourning rituals.

Although we miss being together physically for Shabbat, we are spiritually connected in countless other ways. Please join us online for the following Shabbat programs.

Havdalah - Facebook

Saturdays at 8:30pm

Take a few minutes to come together to end Shabbat and look ahead to the new week. Use your own havdalah set if you like - all you need is some grape juice or wine, some fragrant spices (cinnamon sticks, cloves, rosemary, whatever you like) and a braided candle or two candles that you hold together.


Yahrzeit Requests

As we are unable to mail yahrzeit notifications, please know that we will be reading every name for each week during Shabbat services. You don't need to email or call the synagogue with a requested name. However, if you would like to have a name read on a different Shabbat, please click here - requests must be received by Wednesday at 5pm in order to be included on that week's Yahrzeit list. It is a tradition in Judaism to honor the memory of a loved one through tzedakah, a donation to a meaningful cause. To make a contribution to NSCI, please click here.


And join us each week for:


A Healing Service-Facebook

Resumes Tuesdays at 8:30pm beginning May 26
