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.  You can easily access our services online via FacebookYouTube and Streamspot. 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.


Shabbat Sermon-Facebook

Fridays at 2:30pm

Each week, a member of our clergy will share their Shabbat remarks in advance of services to set the tone as we enter Shabbat.

Saturday Morning Shabbat Experience

Yahrzeit Requests

You can request a loved one's name to be read aloud during Shabbat services in several ways:

  • You will receive a letter with your loved one's name and the Shabbat date that coordinates with their Yahrzeit. Please fill out the form and return to NSCI in the envelope provided. You may also indicate on this letter if you would like their name read on a different date.
  • You can make this same request online by clicking here
  • You can call NSCI during office hours at 847-835-0724.  

All requests must be received by Wednesday at 5pm in order to be included on that week's Yahrzeit list read during Shabbat services.


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.


You can also access the Mishkan T'filah for the House of Mourning book which contains resources for Shivah and other mourning rituals.
