Temple Emanu-El invites everyone to join us for fun, festive celebrations of Shabbat at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 7650 N.

Every Friday evening through the summer,

The summer sun may be blistering and the monsoon clouds billowing, but at 225 North Country Club Road at 5:00pm, the air is cool, the mood relaxed, and the Chardonnay chilled. No, it’s not Happy Hour—it’s Chardonnay Shabbat at Temple Emanu-El!

Beginning at 5:00pm, congregants, visitors and guests meet in the Sy Juster Social Hall to socialize with friends and family and enjoy a cool glass of wine or juice and nosh on a delectable assortment of fruits and cheeses.

At 5:45pm, Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon, Rabbi Batsheva Appel, and Cantorial Soloist Marjorie Hochberg usher in the Jewish Sabbath with lively, musical and uplifting Kabbalat Shabbat Services. This is the Temple’s Friday evening Shabbat service schedule from June 9th through August 25th, 2017, and for some holiday weekends during the year.

Prepare yourself for the beauty and introspection of our candle-lit Kabbalistic Shabbat service with Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon.

Join us for a 45 minute meditation session preceding the Kabbalistic service.

Mind-focusing contemplation on Hebrew words and letters, guided visualizations inspired by the week's Torah portion,  Kabbalistic candle meditations and soul traits from the Mussar,  are just some of the ways we experience the ancient practice of Jewish meditation.

At "Preparing to Pray", we begin with simple seated stretches to relax our muscles from the day's activities.  We then focus on our breath.  Having "steadied ourselves", we begin the meditation practice of the evening. 

We hope to experience a sense of calmness and focus, and  as we enter services,  to experience a deeper appreciation for prayer.

Simply Shabbat

2017: September 22 

2018: January 5, April 20

Simply Shabbat is an exploration of the Friday evening Shabbat Service, with explanations of the service and introductions to Shabbat songs and prayers in a slower-paced, non-threatening celebration of the Sabbath.  Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon, Rabbi Batsheva Appel, and Cantorial Soloist Marjorie Hochberg lead this open approach to understanding the rituals, history and practice of a Reform Sabbath experience.  Instead of a sermon, there is a question-and-answer session.  Come find out what Shabbat is all about!  All are welcome.

Simply Shabbat is provided by the Ruth F. and Samuel H. Cohen Outreach Program of Temple Emanu-El.
