Shabbat Liturgy

This is an overview of the most common Shabbat liturgy performed at our synagogue’s services. Our Shabbat services are typically divided into two main parts: the first hour of our service and a short conclusion is devoted to liturgy and songs, and the second hour is spent in Torah study or teaching. We study our weekly parasha (Torah portion) based on the one-year cycle. After the conclusion of our services, the whole congregation enjoys a pot-luck meal (oneg) together.
