Join us as we welcome students from HSU in our annual Spring Shabbaton!

Rabbi Naomi Steinberg will lead services on Friday evening and throughout the day on Saturday, with musical accompaniment from the Temple Beth El choir and teachings from members of our community on Saturday afternoon.

Everyone in our community is invited to any of the services or teachings on this full Shabbat weekend. We especially encourage families with children, including those in our Beit Limud program, to attend Rabbi Naomi’s Shabbat service on Friday evening.
