Our Family Services at 10:30 am are engaging, and geared towards families with children in 2nd-5th grades. The experience is much like a regular service, with many of the traditional prayers as well as readings from the Torah–an excellent opportunity to allow children and their families to actively participate in a real High Holy Day service that is both age-appropriate and meaningful. There is no charge, but an RSVP is requested for attendance at the Young Family and Family Services.

Join Us in Worship 

Shabbat at East End Temple is a celebration of community and spirit.  We gather in our beautiful sanctuary for a reflective and uplifting musical prayer service.  Our regular Kabbalat Shabbat service takes place every Friday night at 6:15 pm, and is about one hour and fifteen minutes long.  Using Mishkan T’fillah, the Union for Reform Judaism’s current prayer book, our service weaves a combination of Hebrew and English prayers and modern and traditional melodies.  Come join us in welcoming Shabbat at our elevating and inspiring service.  All are welcome.

Other Shabbat Services We Offer:

SIMCHAT SHABBAT 

One Friday night a month we celebrate Simchat Shabbat, an enhanced musical service featuring our own EET 17th Street Band, led by Grammy Award Winner Ben Wisch.  These lively services are followed by a community dinner, guest speaker or program and then a dessert reception.​​

Upcoming Simchat Shabbat Dates (6:15 pm): 

September 20, November 15, December 6

Tot Shabbat: For tots, infant through K, this is a special musical sing-along service for our youngest members. The service features singing, dancing and story-telling. Following the service, we have a Shabbat oneg with candle lighting, challah, and juice. 

Family Services: Family Services will be offered on the last Friday of the month. This will be a lively and engaging Shabbat service created especially with children ages 6-10 in mind. A wonderful opportunity for families to have the experience of a Friday night service that is welcoming and accessible.​

SHABBAT BAGAN

In summer months we are fortunate to enjoy Shabbat in Stuyvesant Square Park, just outside our front door.  Join us for a special Friday evening service in this casual setting with a condensed 30-minute service followed by a community potluck dinner. (6:15pm)

SATURDAY MORNINGS

Sh’ma Shabbat

On occasional Saturday mornings, we gather for an informal, learning-style service.  This special service was created by the members of our Sh’ma Project, EET’s community organizing project.  Its informal approach offers a unique opportunity to come together in prayer and conversation while serving to strengthen the EET community, and gain a greater understanding of what we say and sing during services. While it is not a children’s service, families are welcome to attend together and childcare is available.​
