As the sun sets each Friday night, Congregation Am Echod comes together in a celebration of both the week that has passed and the day of rest upon whose precipice we stand. As we pray together, sing together and laugh together the tumult of the week slips away leaving us with rested minds, nourished souls and the promise of a beautiful Shabbat and weekend. The service provides ample opportunities for participation with songs in Hebrew and English, occasions for discussion and chances to connect with old friends or make some new ones; all of this in an open, welcoming and casual environment. Every Kabbalat Shabbat service is followed by a light snack that enhances the sweetness of the day.
