Shabbat


A PALACE IN TIME - OUR VISION FOR SHABBAT

"A palace in time" is what Abraham Joshua Heschel has called the Sabbath. What does he mean by this?  He claims, "All week, we may ponder and worry whether we are rich or poor, whether we succeed or fail in our occupations; whether we accomplish or fall short of reaching our goals. But who could feel distressed when gazing at . . . eternity, except to feel startled at the vanity of being so distressed." Heschel reminds us that Shabbat is here to lift us up from the worries and pain of our life, to infuse our lives with peace and hope and joy.

FRIDAY EVENING SHABBAT SERVICES

At Rodef Sholom, our intention is to create a worship experience that offers meaning to a wide range of ages and experience.  Our prayer together reflects the diversity of our congregation, with different emphases and teachers. We start Shabbat services at 6:15 pm in the Osher Marin JCC with a pre-oneg at 5:45pm. You can view services in person, on our Facebook page or via Zoom. Links to services can be found below.
