Kabbalat Shabbat Services - Human Rights Shabbat
The core of CBST's religious life is our weekly Kabbalat Shabbat service. Service leadership is shared among congregants, Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, Rabbi Yael Rapport, Cantor Steve Zeidenberg, and our Cooperberg-Rittmaster Rabbinical interns. Joyce Rosenzweig, our music director and pianist leads the CBST Community Chorus in their participation of the service on a regular basis. CBST's own prayer book is used in this warm service that incorporates Hebrew prayers, English readings, and both traditional and modern songs. A drash is delivered each week by one of the Rabbis, an intern, a member of the congregation, or on occasion by a special guest. The kiddush that follows each service provides an opportunity to meet new people and connect with old friends.
