Contemplative Service

Friday November 03

P1002736-2

Mosaic Liberal invites everyone to join us for Kabbalat Shabbat – our contemplative Friday Night service which invites us to leave behind the busy-ness of the week and experience the precious gift of peace (shalom), rest (menucha) and renewal (nafash) that Shabbat offers.

Here is a space for quiet reflection, personal prayer, music to lift the spirit (ruach) and heart-warming translations of new and familiar prayers that help us worship in a meaningful way.

If you are not familiar with Hebrew, you will find the prayers have been transliterated so you can easily follow along.  We look forward to sharing this time with you.

Kabbalat Shabbat replaces the regular Liberal Friday night service this evening.
