Saturday Morning Services
Saturday Mornings 10:00am-12:00pm
Shabbat morning services at Har Shalom begin at 10 am with a brief instrumental / nigun to allow us to become 'present'. Our service follows our prayer book, the Reform Mishkan T'Filah Siddur, with selected prayers and readings. Many of our prayers are sung in contemporary melodies with accompaniment by Martin Model on the mandolin.
After introductory prayers, the service usually lasts until noon, and includes Har Shalom's uniquely reverent 'drive-by' Torah reading or, if there is a minyan, with a more traditional Torah reading. We mention everyone during a Mi'Shebeirach and recognize Yahrtzeits with reading of Kaddish, whether or not we have a minyan. Kiddush and Ha'Motzi follow services.
All are welcome, and we often add new melodies, depending on attendees. We are a serious, but open and welcoming group. Worshippers are welcome to come and go depending on their schedules.
