Shabbat Achat
Friday, March 24
Tot Shabbat Dinner | 6 pm & Shabbat Achat Service | 6:30 pm

Instead of a separate tot Shabbat and a traditional service,
there will be one Shabbat service called Shabbat Achat - one community shabbat.
There will be music from our temple band and extra space on our sanctuary floor
for people to move around, to have more of a physical prayer experience
and get their bodies involved. The service will be upbeat, lots of fun
and about an hour long.
