Kabbalat Shabbat Services - Tu Bish'vat Seder
Journey through the 4 Kabbalistic worlds, eating traditional fruits, nuts, and 4 cups of wine as we explore the theme of the New Year of the Trees. Rather than our usual seating, participants sit together at tables as our Shabbat service and Seder are interwoven.
The core of CBST's religious life is our weekly Kabbalat Shabbat service. Service leadership is shared among congregants, Senior Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, Assistant Rabbi Yael Rapport, and our Cooperberg-Rittmaster Rabbinical interns, and Cantorial intern. Music Director and pianist, Joyce Rosenzweig directs the CBST Community Chorus on a regular basis. CBST's own prayer book, "With All Your Heart" 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 Oneg that follows each service provides an opportunity to meet new people and connect with long-standing friends. Services are livestreamed on https://www.facebook.com/BeitSimchatTorah. All are always welcome to CBST services, always without charge.
