Wind down from the week and welcome Shabbat with soulful, song-filled services, in which everyone can participate.
Bring an acoustic instrument if you play one to jam along and elevate our Kabbalat Shabbat prayers.
Please bring a certified kosher food or drink to share for a light kiddush (snacking & schmoozing).
We’ll use instruments during Kabbalat Shabbat until the final stanza of Lekha Dodi, at which point we’ll stow the instruments and bring in Shabbat a cappella before sunset.
Future Friday night services: June 23, July 7 & 21, Aug 11 & 25, Sept 8.
Makom is a diverse and inclusive community that welcomes participants who espouse many different approaches to Judaism, from secular to traditionally observant. In order to join together as one community without regard to denominational labels, our services blend traditional and progressive practices. We need a minyan of 10 women + 10 men to start the ma`ariv service, so we encourage you to come on time. Both women and men lead services and there is a low partition between women’s and men’s seating. Upon advance request, we’ll gladly set up a section for gender non-conforming individuals. Children are welcome in all sections.
