Every Friday night, we offer a Shabbat service led by our clergy and gifted musicians. This is a time for reflection on the week past and the week ahead.

On this Shabbat, we welcome our Scholar-in-Residence, Rabbi Dr. Bradley Shavit Artson. Rabbi Artson will be with us through the weekend and will be delivering the sermon on the topic of "Almighty? No Way! Embracing the God You Actually Love (an Introduction to Process Theology)."
