Worship

Shabbat

Shabbat Services are held every Friday night at 6:15pm and Saturday morning at 10:30am. 
Shabbat is a day of prayer, learning, and community at IHC, with programs to fit all interests.

Remember Shabbat  and Keep it Holy

(Exodus 20:8)

Weekly Services

Erev Shabbat Services – Fridays at 6:15pm

Friday evening worship services are led by clergy, accompanied by guitar, piano, organ, or other musical instruments. We use the Mishkan T’filah prayer book and the service usually includes a d’var Torah or sermon.

Oneg Shabbat follows immediately after services (except for the second Shabbat of each month where it comes before service). Each service has its own feeling and intention. 

Shabbat Morning Services

Saturdays at 10:30am

Shabbat morning worship uses the Mishkan T’filah prayer book and features a Torah service, and often the celebration of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Everyone is always welcome to attend.

Tanakh Study

Saturday mornings at 9:00am

Join us as we study the books of the Bible after Torah. No preparation necessary. Books are provided. 

Remembrance Services

Friday evenings at 5:30pm

If you are commemorating a Yahrzeit or simply want to remember someone you have lost, join us at our weekly Service of Remembrance. Bring a picture or a story, and share memories, recite prayers and light a candle. 

Monthly Services

Second Friday: Early Oneg Shabbat precedes the service at 5:30pm, followed by a traditional Erev Shabbat service.

Third Friday:  Nefesh Shabbat and Z’man Kodesh: Rabbi Brett and Tami Krichiver lead a spiritual service for the soul that includes joyous and celebratory music.

This service is warm and welcoming for families of all ages. Midway through the service, Rabbi Brett invites children age three and older to join teachers and parent volunteers for their own Shabbat experience which includes Shabbat music, games, coloring, and stories. At the conclusion of Kaddish, the children return to the Sanctuary for the motzi and the closing song.

Fourth Friday: Tot Shabbat begins at 5:30pm for young children six and under and their families, followed by a child-appropriate Oneg Shabbat. Erev Shabbat service begins at 6:15pm followed by an Oneg Shabbat.
