A Deeper Connection: Searching for Meaning in the Shabbat Service


September 9, 2023    
9:30 am - 9:50 am

Event Type

CBI is launching a special pre High Holiday program led by Alan Silverman. Five Shabbat mornings Aug 5, 19, 26, and Sept 2 and 9* at 9:30 am we meet in the sanctuary and spend the first 20 minutes of what would normally be the Shabbat preliminary prayer time, and instead use this time preparing for prayer in a discussion format addressing 3 essential prayer questions:
1. Why am I here (in shul for services)?
2. How do I spend my time (while in services)?
3. What are the obstacles to me accomplishing what I came for?

Whether or not you are a ‘regular’ on Shabbat mornings, we hope you will join us as we prepare our minds and our spirit for the High Holy Days.

*please note that we are NOT having this series on August 12th
