Add Shabbat Kulanu Dates To Your Calendar

What should we wear and bring? 

Please dress appropriately for Shabbat and bring your special Siddur. 

Does Shabbat Kulanu count towards our Service attendance requirement as part of our Bnei Mitzvah process?

Yes. Attendance will be taken and shared with Nili Ionascu, Director of Bnei Mitzvah Program. We encourage families to attend 2 Shabbat Services per month in the 2 years prior to their child becoming a B’nei Mitzvah. 

How do we use the Shabbat Attendance cards?

Shabbat Service attendance cards are kept in the Sanctuary lobby. Collect your card before the Service and at the end of the Service hand your card to Nili, Cantor Ezring, Rabbis Brusso or Sacks, and your attendance will be recorded.

What if I cannot attend with my child on Shabbat morning?

If you cannot attend with your children, please ask another parent to “buddy-up” with your child. We would prefer to have parents attend with their children.  

Is there still class on Sunday for after Shabbat Kulanu?

Vav (6) and Hey (5) regular classes do not meet on the Sunday after Shabbat Kulanu. 

What if we are NOT invited to the B’nei Mitzvah service?

Everyone is invited to Shabbat every week, regardless of other community celebrations.

Grade Shabbatons

As part of the Kulani curriculum, all students in Gimel through Hey, will have the opportunity to lead a prayer during a Friday night service. Each grade has their own Shabbaton every year.
