In the Jewish oral tradition, there are many beautiful stories and music centering around the theme of Shabbat. By hearing some of these, we enhance the Shabbat experience as a community.

Shabbat Services & Kiddush June 29: Peninnah will help us explore "What's in a name?" Our names carry many meanings and blessings; names can shape our lives and our personalities. We will explore sources, meanings, and our connections to our names.
