Ben and his family welcome you!

Welcome to Congregation Schaarai Zedek’s Saturday morning Shabbat service. Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, begins on Friday evening at dusk and concludes when there are three stars in the sky on Saturday evening. While Shabbat is a day of rest, our community joins in worship celebrating the themes of creation and God’s original redemption of the Israelites from Egypt. A reading from the Torah (The Five Books of Moses) and a Haftarah from the Books of the Prophets are part of the Shabbat service.

In addition, at this service, Ben will become a Bar Mitzvah. This Jewish celebration of one’s thirteenth birthday is much more than a party. The Bar Mitzvah, (literally child of the commandment), takes on a new understanding of responsibility and obligation, in their lives and in the Jewish community. This is not the end of their Jewish studies, but rather a commitment to continue to study and embrace their Judaism not only through Confirmation, but throughout their lives and with their future families.

Ben has worked very hard to get to this day, and on behalf of his parents, Katie and Joe, we want to thank you for joining us for this special occasion.

Shabbat Shalom – Wishing you all a Shabbat filled with peace.

Rabbi Joel Simon
Cantor Deborrah Cannizzaro
Rabbi Michael Weiss
Rabbi Emeritus Richard Birnholz
