Religious Services

Kabbalat Shabbat – Welcoming Shabbat - Services are held weekly on Friday evenings at 6:00 p.m. from the date daylight savings time begins in March until the date it ends in November. After daylight savings time ends, Kabbalat Shabbat services are held on Friday evenings at 5:30 p.m. In addition, a family Kabbalat Shabbat Program runs through the Hebrew School year. Details are available on the Halifax Joint Hebrew School website.

Shabbat morning services begin at 9:15 a.m. every Saturday. Shabbat liturgy and d’var Torah delivered by our spiritual leader make each Shabbat inspiring for those attending. There are also many occasions throughout the year when the congregation holds special Shabbat services, such as a scholar-in-residence Shabbat, or a university student Shabbat.

Congregants are encouraged to contribute to Shabbat services by chanting a Haftorah or delivering a d’var Torah. Please contact our spiritual leader to make arrangements.

The Shaar Shalom holds services on all Jewish Holidays. Specific schedules for holidays are available through the synagogue office. Please click on the High Holiday tab at the top of this page for information about High Holiday services and seating.
