  • Saturday morning Shabbat  & weekday holiday services begin at  9:30 AM, with a Kiddush dessert reception usually following davening.. Sometimes (e.g. during our Scholar-in-Residence Shabbat or on the occasion of a Bar/Bat Mitzvah or Aufruf or other special occasion), congregants sponsor a Kiddush luncheon, which culminate in the singing of z'mirot and benching (reciting Birkat Ha-Mazon, the Grace After Meals). During the COVID-19 pandemic, we will have occasional in-person services: either outdoors (weather permitting) or indoors. When we do not have in-person services, Rabbi Malik will send a pre-recording of services and a Dvar Torah on Friday.
  • The times of Saturday afternoon Shabbat Mincha services vary from week to week, based on the ending time of Shabbat. Mincha usually begins no earlier than 4 PM and no later than 6 PM. Whenever there is a Kiddush luncheon at the shul after morning services, Mincha services are held immediately after the luncheon (at approximately 2 PM). When we do begin Mincha in the late afternoon/ early evening, we also join together for "Seudah Shl'ee-sheet" (a.k.a. "Beer & Shmear"), usually followed by Maariv & Havdalah. These services and events are temporarily suspended during the pandemic.
