P’nai Or celebrates Shabbat in many styles, including chanting, singing, live music, movement & meditation, storytelling, in-home Kabbalat Shabbat potlucks, family services, and more. Sometimes we meet on Friday nights, and sometimes we meet on Saturday mornings.
We typically meet for Shabbat once or twice a month. Check our calendar to see which days we're meeting.
On Friday nights, Kabbalat Shabbat services start at 7:30 pm. Our member leaders or guest rabbis guide us as we welcome Shabbat with services ranging from contemplative to ecstatic. We may start by singing niggunim (wordless melodies) and song and then gather at the front of the sanctuary to light candles together. Liturgy is woven with chant, music, and sometimes meditation, as we savor the sweetness of Shabbat.
On Saturdays, Shabbat morning services start at 10 am. Our leaders guide us with an abundance of songs, a Torah service, words of insight, and sometimes a story to touch the heart.
