When most people think of holidays, they think of annual celebrations, but in Judaism there is one holiday that occurs every week - the Sabbath. Known in Hebrew as Shabbat and in Yiddish as Shabbos, this holiday is central to Jewish Life. As the great Jewish writer, Adad Ha-Am has observed: "More than the Jewish people has kept the Sabbath, the Sabbath has kept the Jewish people." The Sabbath truly has been a unifying force for Jews the world over.
More about Shabbat

We invite you to celebrate Shabbat with us here at Congregation Ner Tamid.  We have Friday night services and Saturday morning services. 

On Friday nights, we welcome the Sabbath with song and prayer.  Most Friday nights offer traditional services, but we also have the occasional "special" Shabbat celebration, such as our annual Beatles Shabbat (where all the prayers are recited to the tunes of Beatles music).

On Saturdays, we begin the morning with Torah Study in the Library from 8:45 am to approximately 9:45 am (in English, using The Torah: A Modern Commentary, edited by W. Gunther Plaut (books provided).  At 9:45, we gather in the Beit T'fillah for worship and reading from the Torah.  Afterwards, Our Jewish Heritage class is offered in the Library, a lay-led class reviewing Jewish history and culture.
