Welcome, Celebrate, and Closeout Shabbat with Nehar Shalom

Our community contains multitudes, and so we have a multitude of ways to connect on and around Shabbat, some of which involve being on Zoom on Shabbes, and some of which do not.

We are excited to begin offering in-person services again, as well as continue with some virtual options occasionally. To view our COVID re-opening policy click here.

Virtual Shabbat Services

We have decided to stop holding virtual Kabbalat Shabbat on Fridays when we are not meeting in person. This is in part because we have had difficulty finding leaders. If attending virtually is really important to you and you would like to see these virtual services continue, please let us know – reach out to Rabbi Leora or any board member. If you are interested in leading virtual services, please let us know! As we continue to assess what our service schedule is in the fall, we may add virtual services back in. If you would like this to happen, again, please let us know. Your feedback is really important to us (whether or not you are a member of Nehar Shalom).
