Shabbat Services

Come and enjoy our relaxed, fun and meaningful Shabbat services. Ruach Hamidbar offers a perfect blend of tradition and creativity.

  • We celebrate Shabbat through music, dance, drumming, storytelling, guided meditation, and interactive prayer.
  • We are a warm and accepting community. We are LGBTQ and differently-abled friendly.
  • All Jews and spiritual seekers are welcome. No background or Hebrew is necessary.
  • We hold monthly Friday night services at 7:30 pm.
  • We hold monthly Saturday morning services at 10:00 am.
  • All services are followed by a great kiddush and fun shmoozing time.

We hope that you will join us!
