Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Vayeshev – including Kabbalat Shabbat!

Shavua tov – a  good week to you!

Since the coming weekend is a First Friday weekend on the secular calendar, we’ll celebrate Shabbat both on Friday night (with Kabbalat Shabbat services led by Rabbi Rachel at 6pm) and Saturday morning (with Shabbat morning services  led by Rabbi Rachel where we’ll read from parashat Vayeshev.)return-to-shabbat
