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.

Our monthly Community Shabbat Potluck  is back this year, of course subject to Covid safety policies as needed. We begin as one big Havurah family with Shabbat candle lighting and rituals, share a great potluck meal, and then have a fun intergenerational activity: Israeli dancing, game night, a story for kids and the kid in all of us are a few examples. This is followed by Wine and Wisdom, an adult-oriented   learning/discussion focused on the week’s Torah portion, an upcoming holiday, or another topic relevant to current events or of general interest.

Twice a month on Shabbat mornings, we offer a Spirit of Shabbat service, a blend of traditional prayers, music, meditation, poetry and discussion on the week’s Torah portion. The details on the location are sent in our Havurah Happenings updates. Join our email list to receive further information!

And once a month, we gather for a Friday night Shabbat service followed by time to connect over kiddush!

Havurah parents with young children may also organize a children’s Shabbat that includes songs, stories and a craft led by parent volunteers. It’s a wonderful way for kids to make new friends and parents to strengthen connections with other Havurah families! Please be in touch with Rabbi Simcha if you’re interested in being part of this Kid’s Shabbat experience.

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

Shabbat shalom!
