Early Shabbat Morning Service

June 16th, 9:00-11:30 am

A number of our community’s families with young children have suggested beginning the Shabbat morning service a bit earlier once a month, so that they can more easily participate. This would allow them to come for a reasonable amount of time closer to the end of the service and still participate in Kiddush with everyone else before going home for nap time. This will be a blessing for all of us, as we enjoy Shabbos socializing with people we don’t often get to spend time with. We have decided to do a pilot earlier Shabbat morning service before summer vacations!  Here are the details: 
Timing: Services begin at 9:00am; The main part of the morning service, Shacharit, will begin at 9:30, with the Torah service at 10:00. Following Musaf, Kiddush will begin at 11:30.
In order to start Shacharit without delay and flow smoothly into the Torah service, we need to insure a minyan by 9:30. There is something exciting in striving to meet diverse needs among us, in this case needing to rally our energy around creating a more inclusive monthly Shabbat service. This will of course require some sacrifice from all of us in committing to attending earlier services!  Please email Rina at row2@cornell.edu to let us know whether we’ll be able to count you in the minyan at 9:30am on June 16.
