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
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.

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.
