Summer Services!

Posted on July 9th, 2016 by Audrey Korotkin

When summer comes, our worship schedule changes. The first and third Fridays of the month are 6:00 PM services and the second and fourth Fridays are at 7:30 PM. All 7:30 services are in Nathan Kaber Hall. The first-Friday services are at 6:00 in the Petsonk Rose Garden (weather permitting). The third-Friday  is a 6:00 Poolside Shabbat, our popular home-based Shabbat service that includes guitar music, prayers, stories and conversation, a pot-luck cookout supper (the host provides the proteins and drinks), and of course a swim. Make sure you check Facebook or call Danielle in the office at 942-0057 for the latest information! (click on the link on the bottom right of this page).
