Shir L’Shabbat: Services with Music

Ohev Sholom warmly welcomes you to join us for our monthly musical Shabbat morning services. We begin services at 10:00 a.m. Beforehand, we enjoy coffee and a light breakfast in Asner Hall at 9:30 a.m.

Our service leaders – Anna Jaffe, Linda Salvay and Rabbi White – shepherd a worship experience that blends traditional and contemporary elements. We follow a traditional structure that includes Pesukei D’Zimra, Shacharit, the Torah service and Musaf. While adhering to the halachic requirements of the Conservative movement, it balances tradition with innovation.

We want you to feel comfortable participating, bringing your children and enjoying the warmth and joy of fellowship that music inspires.

We call this blended service “Shir L’Shabbat,” which has multiple nuances, the two most primary being “Song of Shabbat” and “Song for Shabbat.” We believe the name captures the principal aim of the experience, which is to take the inspirational experience of Shabbat worship up a notch through song.

We hope to see you!
