Shabbat

Come and join the Narberth Havurah to kindle the Shabbat candles and celebrate the joy, peace, and sense of connection that Shabbat can be.

The Havurah offers two types of Shabbat gatherings. Our monthly Community Shabbat Celebration and Potluck feels like a huge family getting together for Shabbat, beginning with Shabbat songs, the candle lighting, blessing the challah and wine, and perhaps a Shabbat teaching or story. Following dinner will be an activity appropriate for all ages.  For those who would like to stay longer, these gatherings will conclude with adult study on the weekly Torah portion, upcoming holidays, or other topics of interest to the group.

The other monthly Shabbat offering is a Friday night Shabbat service, which will take place at the Parish House at St. John’s Episcopal Church, located at 404 Levering Mill Road, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. Our services blend traditional prayer with reflection and dialogue, silence and song.

Check our calendar for all upcoming dates of these two wonderful ways to celebrate Shabbat in the upcoming year.

Feel free to contact Georgette Dubois, chair of our Shabbat Committee, to volunteer to work on a Shabbat gathering, or if you have questions or concerns.

Shabbat shalom!
