Family Service at 6:30 p.m.
The first Friday of the month, a child-friendly service every month and Shir Tzion (September-June)
Other Fridays at 7:30 p.m.
On the second Friday of the month, the service includes a vocal Quartet, the organ and a generally more contemplative mood. Other Friday nights might include the Kol Tzion, our adult choir, Shir Chants, our teen ensemble, our Guitar Corps or other instrumentalists.
Friday Summer Services (June – August) will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will be held on our terrace, overlooking our beautiful garden, when weather permits. We hope this time will enable you to enjoy a spirited service followed by a relaxing Shabbat dinner at home with family and/or friends. From 5:30 to 6:00 we gather for Kabbalat Panim, gathering time including light hors d’oevres. Following the service, from 7:00 to 7:30 we have a brief oneg Shabbat before people go home for Shabbat dinner.
Torah Study at 9:00 a.m.
Before Shabbat morning services each week, our rabbis lead a Torah study on the portion of the week for anyone who wants to drop in and for those who come to study and participate regularly.
Shabbat Services at 10:00 a.m.
We use a siddur/prayer book assembled and edited by Mount Zion clergy and printed in 2000. Most weeks we celebrate a 13-year-old becoming bar or bat mitzvah. On the weeks that we do not, we have an intimate service held in the round and often partially led by trained members of the congregation.
Tot Shabbat at 10:30 a.m. (second Saturday of every month)
A service for families with children under 7 years old followed by a healthy potluck lunch and craft project.
