Community Shabbat Services
Community Shabbat services take place on Saturday mornings throughout the year on which there is no Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Led by our clergy team, these services often feature a special theme or program in addition to the reading of the Torah. Watch for these services once or twice a month.

Shir Shabbat Services
Between Simchat Torah and Shavuot, Shir Shabbat services are held in the chapel as an alternative to the Bar or Bat Mitzah service in the sanctuary. Beginning at 10:30 am, Shir Shabbat services are predominately lay-led, with congregational volunteers leading the service as well as the Torah and Haftarah readings. For more information on this informal worship experience or to volunteer for a leadership role in an upcoming service please see our Shir Shabbat page.
Congregation Shir Hadash uses the Israeli parsha calendar, rather than the Diaspora parshah calendar. This means that some years, for part of the year, we are reading parshot one week earlier than some local congregations.
