Shabbat

What does a regular Shabbat service look like?

We aspire to be as inclusive as possible with the use of our trichitza, which allows for both mixed and separate seating. The trichitza means three sections; one for men, one for women and a third for mixed seating. Please sit where you feel most comfortable. This is consistent with our philosophy of honouring our similarities and embracing our differences; indeed each service has a unique and varied group of congregants participate.

We encourage both men and women to play an active role in leading davening (prayer), and we use the Partnership Minyan model in which certain parts of the service are reserved for male leaders, based on traditional Jewish law. Please be in touch if you are interested in leading a part of davening.

 

What should I wear?

Our Shabbat services attract a wide spectrum of people dressed in many different ways. Some will be wearing jeans, and others will be wearing business attire. Some women will be wearing pants and others may be wearing long skirts. Because we are in a spiritual space, please come dressed in a way that you think is appropriate and that best exemplifies how you would, or would want to dress for Shabbat.

Annex Shul’s Friday night service is a journey. Challenge yourself to travel with us to the unknown; a place where together we can sing like no one is listening and dance like no one is watching in the comfort of our growing community.

When are the next services and dinner?

These usually take place every two weeks. Be sure to check the Calendar of Events to find out when the next dinner is planned!
