Ahavat Olam

A progressive synagogue in Vancouver, BC, Canada

Shabbat morning, October 14, 2017 תפילת שבת

Please come and join us for Shabbat morning on October 14,  2017 at 10 am at the Vancouver Peretz Centre. Everyone is most welcome.

We’ll share prayers and reflections, mingling Hebrew, English and wordless melodies with passages of silence. We’ll follow the flow of the traditional prayer service with lots of room for our own personal journeys to unfold. The Torah portion that Shabbat is B’reshit, Genesis 1:1-6:8 — the very beginning of the story, the beginning of our understanding of the world. If we’re a minyan, we’ll chant from our Torah scroll in Hebrew. If we are less than a minyan, we’ll read the passages out of a book. Either way, we’ll share our reflections, inspirations and questions.

Right after the davvening, we’ll share a veggie, potluck Kiddush lunch. This will give us all a chance to hang out together, get to know each other, catch up, enjoy the connections among us. So, please plan to stay and bring a generous, abundant dish to share. Main dishes, side dishes, drinks, desserts are all most welcome. Ahavat Olam will provide wine and hallah.

We’ll gather in the children’s classroom downstairs in the Peretz Centre, a fully accessible facility at 6184 Ash Street a block west of Cambie Street at 45th, just between the Canada Line Oakridge and Langara stations. Note that this week we’re in a different room from usual: turn right (but don’t go up the stairs) when you come in the front door instead of going straight ahead. There will be signs. We’ll begin at 10 a.m., finish the davvening and Torah exploration by 12:30 and make Kiddush and have lunch at about 12:45.
