Join CBST for our Pride Shabbat Morning Services – Liberal Format on Saturday, June 28, 29 Sivan at 10am, at 57 Bethune Street. Services will be led by Cooperberg-Rittmaster Rabbinical Interns Ruhi Sophia Rubenstein and Rabbi Mikie Goldstein, and Cantorial Soloist Re’ut Ben-Ze’ev; Children’s and Family service led by Rabbi Rachel Weiss.
Join us after Shabbat Morning at 1pm at Pier 45 West, Hudson River Park, for our annual Pride Multi-Generational Picnic – bring a dairy/vegetarian dish to share!
This morning service uses the Reconstructionist prayer book, Kol Haneshamah. Both the prayer book and the service combine traditional and contemporary liturgy in both Hebrew and English. We read from the Torah according to the triennial cycle and discuss the week’s Torah portion.
In addition to a specific torah aliyah/blessings for healing, there is always a aliyah/blessing for yahrtzeit/memory, providing a unique opportunity to remember someone special in your life that has passed, whether recently or a long time ago. There is also one for s’machot/celebrations. This is a great opportunity to celebrate with community a birthday, an anniversary, a job promotion, or even a new exercise regimen.
