Friday, November 26 | 6:15 p.m.

Attend Shabbat services in-person in the Sanctuary! We have limited space available for members of Temple Isaiah to join us for prayer, song, and community. Each service will be followed by a food-free “Shabbos Shmooze” (aka Oneg, but no noshes or bring-your-own-dinner allowed just yet). You must RSVP to attend in-person; first come, first served. Services will also be streamed to our Vimeo channel, website & Facebook page.

Shabbat Schmooze

Friday, November 26 | 7:00 p.m. - following Shabat Services

We are thrilled to welcome folks back to our Sanctuary for Shabbat worship every Friday at 6:15pm unless otherwise noted. As far as our post-services gathering – what was in a pre-Covid world called Oneg - we are not quite ready to begin communal eating (or food-sharing) afterward. Our “middle ground” is what we like to call Shabbos Shmooze: a chance to spend a few food-free minutes reconnecting with community after praying together. Stay and linger in the Sanctuary for a bit before heading home!
 
We hope to re-launch Oneg and bring back those delicious cookies in the coming months. Stay tuned!
