Shabbat

Shabbat

Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears in a different way. When we pray together, we strive to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices.  Worship has been shown to help the mind, body, and soul. Shabbat begins at sundown on Friday and ends at sundown on Saturday.  Shabbat services afford us the opportunity to decompress, reflect, sing, and spend time with our families and community. Our services are conducted with a mixture of Hebrew and English and our Prayer book provides English transliteration.

Congregation Kol Ami of Frederick generally holds Friday evening Shabbat services on the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick.   Tot Shabbat (0-7 years) is held from 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm, usually on the first Friday of each month, followed by regular Erev Shabbat Services at 7:30 pm. Please refer to our calendar for the latest information.

Shabbat morning services are held on Saturday mornings at 10 am when there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

Torah of Our Own – Torah Dedication

Sunday, June 8, 2008 was a special day that none of us will soon forget.  Our new Torah scroll was dedicated and celebrated by all.  Our Torah has been restored to a pristine state and it has now found a loving home with Congregation Kol Ami of Frederick.  Each congregant had a chance to finish one letter in our Torah, thus completing the 613th commandment – that you shall complete a Torah in your lifetime.
