SHABBAT SHALOM  or GOOD SHABBES is the warm greeting you will receive from our friendly ushers upon entering Temple Israel for Shabbat Services.

In the Torah it is written, “On the seventh day, God finished the work and ceased from all the work and God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because on it God ceased from all work of creation.”  (Genesis 2:2-3).

CELEBRATE YOUR SHABBAT YOUR WAY! 
Shabbat is the only observance mentioned in the Ten Commandments.  It is a day to rest, pray and study Torah.
At Temple Israel, there is a special Shabbat Service just for you.  Our services are in English, with transliterations and translations offered in our prayer books for prayers recited in Hebrew.  We use the new Mishkan T’filah prayer book for our Shabbat Services.

SPECIAL SHABBAT SERVICES

SHABBAT ROSH KODESH:  Shabbat falls on the night of the new moon. 

SHABBAT SHUVAH: The Shabbat of Return is the Shabbat that falls beween Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur also known as the Ten Days of Repentance.  “Repentence” is the usual theme. 

SHABBAT KHOL ha-MOED SUKKOT:  This Shabbat falls during the intermediate days of Sukkot.

SHABBAT BERESHIT: The Shabbat of Beginning or the Sabbath of Genesis is the first Shabbat after Simkhat Torah and marks the opening of the annual cycle of Torah readings once again with Genesis 1:1-6:8.

SHABBAT CHANUKAH: This is the Shabbat that falls on the Friday during the 8 days of the Chanukah holiday.

SHABBAT SHIRA: a Shabbat which falls on or before Tu B’Shevat.  It is the Shabbat of Song to correspond with the parashat B’Shalam which includes the Song of the Israelites sang after they crossed the Red Sea.   Our Adult Choir perform with their gift of song.  A true musical delight for the ears, come & enjoy.  

SPRING SHABBATS:  There are four special Shabbats during the spring.  The first two occur before Purim and the second two after Purim  In addition to the weekly Torah portion for each of these Shabbats, a maftir is read from a second sefer torah.  The four Shabbats are        

1.  Shabbat Shekalim – This Shabbat coincides with Rosh Khodesh Adar (or Adar 11 in a leap year).                             

2.  Shabbat Zakhot – THe Shabbat of Remembrance falls before Purim.  The maftir (Deuteronomy 25:17-19 calls on the Jews to remember what Amalek (Haman is a descendant of Amalek, an enemy of the Jews) did to you.                               

3.  Shabbat Parah: this is the Shabbat of the Red Heifer.  A Heifer is an animal whose ashes were used for ritual purifications.       

4.   Shabbat ha-Khodesh:  The Shabbat of the month takes its name from opening words of the maftir.

SHABBAT HA-GADOL:  Shabbat Ha-Gadol (Great Shabbat) is the Shabbat before Pesach (Passover). The sermon was usually about preparations for Pesach, and this special Shabbat commemorates a preparation for the original Pesach in Egypt. Shabbat Ha-Gadol (The Great Sabbath) commemorates the 10th day of Nissan, when the Hebrew slaves took the lambs that they were going to offer for Pesach and tied them up outside their homes, to keep until they offered it on the 14th (Ex. 12:3-6). According to tradition, this was a dangerous thing to do, because Egyptians worshipped sheep, but miraculously, instead of slaughtering the Hebrews, the Egyptians instead fought with each other over whether the Hebrews should be sent away already.The special haftarah reading for this Shabbat is Malachi 3:4-24. This messianic prophecy regarding the end of days and the return of the prophet Elijah is read at this time because it is believed that Elijah will return at Pesach. This is why we include a cup for him in our seder rituals
