Synaplex Shabbat -- December 8th 

A "Synaplex" Shabbat is a shabbat morning where Mishkan Torah offers a range of activities, reflecting the idea that there are many diverse expressions of Judaism among different interests, age groups, and experiences.  Our second of four Synaplex Shabbatot comes on Saturday, December 8th and features the following options:

Text Study with Rabbi Cohen 

The focus will be on renewal and rededication.  The study session will begin at 10:30.  We are asking for reservations so that there are enough materials for everyone.     

Kabbalah for Teens 

There are those who say that one should not study Kabbalah, the overarching term for Jewish mysticism, until one has reached the age of 40 years.  We are proposing, though, that it is never too early to begin a spiritual journey, and have created a program specifically designed for teens (ages 13 - 17) that gives them an introduction to Jewish mystical history and practice.  The second of four programs for the year begins at 10:30.  We are asking for reservations so that there are enough materials for everyone.  Sign up to begin the journey here.

Tot Shabbat

Nothing is quite like the joy of Shabbat as experienced by young children.  This Shabbat will have as its theme, Chanukah, the holiday that all children love.  Come sing, dance, play, eat (yes, eat!) and celebrate with the future of Judaism in a program designed for 2 - 5 year olds and any adults who care to join them.  A variety of activities are planned for this enthusiastic group, and the fun begins at 11:00.  Once again, to make sure we have enough for everyone, please sign up in advance by registering here.

Alternative Musaf Service with Yael Fischmann  

Yael Fischmann will lead an alternative musaf servoce focusing on re-dedication and renewal.  The service will begin at approximately 11:30.

Karp Family School

Every Saturday (not just on Synaplex Shabbat), our 6 - 12 year olds gather  to learn in the Karp Family Hebrew School. Through drama, song, and innovative teaching techniques specifically designed for the Shabbat experience, our children are engaged and truly a part of the greater synagogue community.  Come try it out for the first time on September 8th, and register for school officially here.

Traditional Shabbat Services

Yes, we have that too!  Services begin every Saturday at 9:30 and are warm, uplifting, and intellectually stimulating.  From theBirchot HaShachar to the Torah Service to Adon Olam, a Mishkan Torah service is a great way to spend a Shabbat morning.  Saul Oresky will lead the Schacharit and Torah services on this day.
