Join Us for Services

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.
