We are an intimate congregation, renewing Jews & Judaism
Neve Shalom did itself proud this Rosh Hashanah, with our Friday evening Shabbat Tish and seder, our live-streamed service Saturday morning (you can (re)view it here), and our first ever Tashlikh service.
There will be no Torah study this coming Saturday. We encourage our members to use that hour (or any other time this week) to take a personal, spiritual inventory of the past year. The creators of a site called 10Q offer 10 questions to aid us in such reflection; you can use the website or simply answer the questions in your own journal.
We will continue our High Holy Day offerings with several options for Yom Kippur.

About Congregation Neve Shalom
Neve Shalom (Oasis of Peace) was founded in 1989 as a creative expression of the traditional forms of Judaism. We draw on every level of Jewish thought and inspiration: hasidic, halakhic, kabbalistic, biblical, Talmudic. The tradition is our guide, but our approach is always imaginative and informal, personal and evocative. We strive to create a nurturing community of acceptance and support, affirming the individual and welcoming a variety of Jewish identities.
We gather every week on Saturday morning for a Torah service and a study highlighted by deep, respectful discussion. Music is featured prominently, both at our monthly Kabbalat Shabbat service and at our occasional concerts. High Holy Days services and Passover seders are open to the entire community at no charge.
Neve Shalom is a member of the Aleph Network of Jewish Renewal Communities.
Weekly Saturday Morning Service & Torah Study
We begin each Saturday morning at 10 am with a brief Shabbat service. Torah study begins at 10:30 am and lasts until noon.
