Join Us for Services

WE INVITE YOU TO ATTEND OUR ONLINE SERVICES! Join us as we gather as a community to share and stay connected. LEARN MORE HERE.

Shabbat is meant to be a weekly spiritual retreat, an opportunity to be renewed, restored, and refreshed. A full experience of Shabbat is needed in today’s world perhaps more than ever before. Let us nurture you during Shabbat at WJC, with enlivening song and prayer.

Our endlessly busy lives leave precious little time for deep engagement and reflection. Give yourself a gift of a Shabbat, a true retreat and rest, so that you can explore new horizons that beckon you, and reconnect with your precious inner life.

Friday Kabbalat Shabbat Services are at 7:30pm in the summer and 6pm in the winter.  Check the calendar for when the time changes.

On the First Friday of every month we do not have services, instead we have a Shabbat dinner. Join in for this family-friendly Kiddush, candle-lighting and meal. Bring a dairy or vegetarian dish to share.

Saturday mornings services are always at 10am followed by Kiddush.

Reminders:

  • When attending services, please be perfume and scent-free and avoid wearing furs; many of our congregants have allergies.
  • We are a dairy-vegetarian facility. Please ensure that all food and drinks that you bring into the building meet these guidelines.

    FIRST FRIDAY Shabbat Home Dinner and Celebration

    We miss our monthly "First Friday" pot luck Shabbat dinners, so we are trying something new so that we can be together virtually for a Shabbat meal. We will all be together, while we each light candles and eat Shabbat dinner in our own homes. At 6pm Rabbi Jonathan will lead us in the table rituals to welcome Shabbat. Then we will join "Breakout Tables" and eat with the company of other community members. After the meal, Rabbi Jonathan will reconvene us all for some words of Torah, Birkat Hamazon (Grace after Meals) and some Shabbat singing. It should be lovely, let's find out together how this works! (There will be no 7:30 service this evening.)
