Alternative Shabbat Service
On December 14th, participate in a monthly service will be modeled off of the High Holiday service that has taken place in the CJL over the past years. This highly participatory service will be a wonderful experience for:
- People looking for alternative avenues into traditional prayer.
- A more relaxed, informal atmosphere in which to pray.
- Families with children who are seeking service credit and a chance to pray together.
Join us for a breakfast snack at 10:00am. The service will begin at 10:30am.
