Shabbat Experiences

Shabbat Experiences

For thousands of years Shabbat has offered the Jewish People the opportunity to come together as a community to reconnect with ourselves, our tradition and each other. CBS offers several avenues to enhance the Shabbat experience.

Friday Nights

At 6:00 PM we welcome Shabbat in the intimate environment of the Feather Beit Midrash. Led by our talented clergy, this hour-long service includes singing, teaching, and time for reflection (appropriate for school-age children and above).

We periodically offer alternative Friday night experiences:


These musically enhanced services afford the worshipper a chance to explore and experience the liturgy in a new light. Families of all age ranges can enjoy the exuberant spirit of SHABBATONE! Dancing is encouraged. A dessert reception (Oneg) is also offered at these “soul-filled happenings.”

Shabbat Mornings

Our traditional egalitarian service begins at 9:30 AM in the Kamensky Sanctuary. Within the context of our traditional liturgy, we read from the Torah and celebrate milestone moments in the lives of our members, ranging from B’nai Mitzvah to Aufrufs, Baby Namings, milestone birthdays, and anniversaries.


Shabbat is not just about services. At the conclusion of services, we all join together as one community for a kiddush lunch in the social hall, followed by birkat hamazon. Kiddush lunch is a weekly opportunity for our members and guests to create community while sharing a meal. It is our opportunity to celebrate, schmooze, and reconnect with the people who make up our vibrant congregation.

For a more intimate Shabbat day experience, our Mincha (afternoon) service takes place approximately 45 minutes after the conclusion of morning services, but no earlier than 12:15 PM.

The following Shabbat options do not meet every week. Please check the calendar for specific dates:
