Weekly Shabbat Greeters. Do you remember how you felt when you were welcomed by one of the Shabbat Greeters on a Friday night or Saturday morning?  If it was your first time, we hope you felt a sense of ease and comfort!  If you’ve been coming all of your life, we hope you were overcome with a sense of joy and a feeling of peace.

This sums up what being a Shabbat Greeter is all about: creating a sense of comfort and community for anyone who enters through our gates to attend Shabbat services.

Have fun while becoming involved in our community.
