As the nights get longer and the temperature drops, stay around for a bit after Friday evening services for an inspiring Shiur delivered by Rabbi Soloveichik. There is no better way to transition from the workweek to the aura of Shabbat than experiencing our magnificent Kabbalat Shabbat service followed by Friday Night Lights.

Friday Night Lights returned for 5778 on Friday night, October 20, 2017, and will continue until the Shabbat before Passover, Friday, March 23, 2018.


The 2017-2018 season is sponsored by the Julis Family.
