Shabbat services are held every Friday evening and some Saturday mornings. All of our lively, musical services (including High Holidays) are free and open to all. Service formats vary, and may include:

  • a family service ("Shabbat Mishpachah"), typically held on the first Friday of every month
  • a meditation and chanting service
  • a Rabbi’s "Tisch" (table), consisting of dinner and discussion of topical subjects
  • Services led by our Kehiloft (Hebrew High School) teens
  • Tot Shabbat services for our youngest members and friends

Oneg Shabbat celebrations follow every service, and include challah, wine, and dessert (and often many other goodies brought by attendees!).

During the year, special Shabbat services are also planned. Some include community pot luck dinners before services, services under the stars, and other special events.

Saturday morning services are always held when a B-Mitzvah* is celebrated, as well as on some other Saturdays and special occasions.

Havdalah services, which conclude Shabbat, are occasionally held on Saturday evening.

Services are held on Rosh HashanahYom Kippur and other major Jewish holidays.

Our services combine Hebrew and English, with an emphasis on modern interpretations of traditional liturgy. Many of our songs and prayers will be recognizable to those who are accustomed to other movements of Judaism, but they will also occasionally be new and different!

Our congregation works hard to make everyone feel welcome at every service: members or non-members, adults or children, and Jews or family and community members of other faiths. We focus on coming together in peace and gratitude, and strive to ensure that all who worship with us feel at home. 

See our Calendar for a full schedule of services.

*Many Jewish organizations, including CKS, use the inclusive term B-Mitzvah along with "bar" or "bat" mitzvah to recognize gender plurality.
