Shabbat Services on Saturday Mornings
Our weekly Shabbat morning service is liturgically traditional and egalitarian. It features spirited singing and prayer, the weekly chanting of the parsha (section of the Torah read each Shabbat) and haftarah, and an informal Torah study discussion. Everyone is welcome regardless of background. Each service is followed by a Kiddush luncheon during which congregants and guests continue the discussion of the Torah Study, catch up with friends, meet new people, and nosh on bagels and lox.Shabbat morning services start at 9:30 am.
Friday Night Kabbalat Shabbat and Maariv Services
The Pelham Jewish Center offers weekly Shabbat services on Friday night. These Kabbalat Shabbat services involve singing and at times, dancing, using both traditional melodies and Carlebach niggunim (tunes). The service is egalitarian and liturgically traditional. It offers a chance to leave behind the stresses of the previous week and enter a space of timelessness and joy.
Friday night services start at 6:30 pm.
Would you like to become more familiar with the tunes that we use at the Pelham Jewish Center Friday Night Service? Feel free to download these audio files. The voices you hear belong to our congregants and Rabbi, and all these songs were recorded for our CD entitled, " PJC Kabbalat Shabbat." The page numbers announced in the audio files are from the Shabbat Sim Shalom siddur.
