9:45am - Start your prayers on the right foot

Pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee and join a  quick learning session in preparation for prayer. The Chassidic custom of delving into the profound teachings of Chassidic philosophy is meant to enhance your connection to G‑d while praying.

10:00am - Beginning of morning service

For those who may not be familiar with the prayers, we will be providing a siddur with English translations and transliterations. The page numbers will be announced, and the siddur will guide you on when to stand and sit during the prayers.
In accordance with tradition, men sit on one side and ladies on the other side of the mechitzah (room divider). This arrangement allows us to maintain the sanctity and beauty of our customs.

10:45am - Weekly Parsha reading

After the morning prayers, which typically take approximately 45 minutes, we will have a Torah reading in Hebrew, interspersed with insightful explanations in English. Of course you can follow along in our Hebrew- English Chumashim (Torah books), we'll make sure to announce the right page.

11:15am - Mussaf Prayer

The Torah reading will be followed by (the fairly brief) Mussaf prayer and the recitation of the daily Psalms. And yes, you guessed it, we have Hebrew- English Books of Psalms so you can use the language you're more comfortable with.

11:45am - Kiddush Luncheon

The kiddush is actually named after the mitzvah of Kiddush, which is to sanctify the day over a cup of wine or grapejuice. You might be familiar with this from Friday night Shabbos meals, but it is also part of Shabbos day.

After drinking some Kiddush wine it is customary to eat a Shabbos meal, traditionally cholent, a hot stew that has been cooked all night.  Alongside the cholent, you can expect some cake, refreshing drinks, and perhaps even some salad or other dishes to add some variety.
