Congregation Gates of Heaven invites members and non-members to its monthly participatory song-filled and family-oriented Shabbat Worship Service, Katan Shabbat (little Shabbat), and Prayer Group on Friday, February 9, at 7 p.m. These services, prayer group, and a pot luck dinner are held on the second Friday of each month.
Katan Shabbat (little Shabbat) is a service designed for children in grades kindergarten through second grade. With storytelling, music, and crafts. Children will develop a sense of Shabbat in a pleasant, interactive, and friendly environment. Children begin to follow our service in a siddur designed for them and take home a Shabbat craft project to share with their families. Led by Elisa Harrington-Verb or Arnie Rotenberg. Parents are welcome, but not required, to stay.
For children through second grade we also offer a Prayer Group, a section in the back of the sanctuary for quiet play with parents so everyone can enjoy Shabbat service together.
A congregational pot luck dinner will be held at 6 p.m. before these services and reservations are required. The services and dinner are held at the temple located at 852 Ashmore Ave. in Schenectady and are open to the community. The services are free. The dinner fee is $2 per person and a dish to share that feeds 10. Or $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 years old (max $35 per family) and you don’t need to bring dish to share. For more information or to make a dinner reservation, please contact Kathy in the temple office at (518) 374-8173 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
