Our synagogue is honored to welcome visitors to our community. Feel free to drop in for any of our classes, services, or programs, or spend Shabbat with us if you are visiting family or friends, in town on business, or just looking for a different kind of Shabbat experience!
Our congregation is also engaged in a strategic growth initiative, and is actively seeking families looking to join our dynamic, growing community where your presence will help shape the future of the community. Contact the Rabbi to learn more about the Aspen Hill Initiative providing no-interest, forgivable home-buyer loans, and discounted preschool tuition.
What to Expect on Shabbat
There is an hour long, spiritual, song-filled Kabbalat Shabbat service every Friday night (7pm during summer months, and varied times in the winter based on sunset/candle lighting times). Children are always welcome.
Shabbat morning services are held weekly between 9am – 11:30am. The Torah reading service runs approximately from 10am – 11am, and includes a sermon, regularly delivered by the Rabbi. Children’s groups are led by parent volunteers under the direction of our youth director, and are broken out over four different age groups. In addition, all children are welcome in synagogue throughout the service, and are encouraged to lead parts of the davening.
A communal kiddush providing hot and cold refreshments follows the service each week, but relies on sponsorships of members and guests!
The Rabbi gives a class every Shabbat afternoon open to the community, which takes place 45 minutes before Mincha services. Shabbat concludes each week with a light seudah shlishit meal, Maariv services, and a spirited Havdalah.
We are happy to provide Shabbat hospitality for any visitors. Please contact the office to make arrangements.
