Shabbat services are held every Shabbat of the year for every tefillah. Members of the community come from all over Cambridge and Somerville to daven with us.
Friday Mincha, followed by Kabbalat Shabbat and Maariv, begins shortly after candle lighting most of the year and at 7:30PM during the summer. In the winter, when Shabbat begins early, there is often a short shiur between Mincha and Kabbalat Shabbat.
We publish a community parsha sheet, the Can Tab, each Shabbat. If you are interested in submitting a d'var Torah, you can sign up here.
Shacharit generally begins at 9AM. Torah reading is done entirely by community members. If you are interested in leining, please sign up here. A d'var Torah is shared by our rabbinic advisor or a member of the community after Musaf. If you're interested in sharing words of Torah, please reach out to Mike Frank. After davening, we host a community kiddush. If you are interested in sponsoring a kiddush for a simcha, yahrtzeit, or other event, please contact us.
Mincha on Shabbat afternoon begins about 15 minutes before Friday's candle lighting time. It is followed by seudah shlishit featuring spirited singing and words of Torah. Maariv at the end of Shabbat begins 44 minutes after sunset, followed by Havdalah.
Our weekly kiddush and seudah shlishit are funded entirely by donations. Please consider contributing by visiting our donations page.
