The Shabbat experience at Central Synagogue is designed to engage the entire familly. Each week, for sale we offer an Erev Shabbat (Shabbat Evening) worship service and another concurrent program in conjunction with our friends and colleagues from Congregation Beth Emeth. A more intimate study group and Torah service occurs on Shabbat morning, nurse unless there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
Our worship styles are progressive; sometimes our rabbis will present ideas through sermons and at other times facilitate discussion by the congregation. Our cantor and soloist engage us with a mix of musical styles accompanied by piano and/or guitar. Frequently our music is enhanced by the addition of instrumental and vocal talents of Central Beat (the synagogue band), our choir, and Shir Harmony (a lay led group of musicians).
