Kol Shofar offers a wide variety of communal prayer services for Shabbat and Holidays, from traditional services to those that offer a meditative approach. Our services are highly participatory, egalitarian, and accessible. Men and women share fully in all aspects of congregational life, including ritual. Our members lead services and other areas of worship.
Traditional prayer books and transliterated prayer books are both available, providing prayer text versions in Hebrew, transliteration and English.
Everyone is welcome regardless of background or knowledge. To learn about shabbat services at Kol Shofar, please see this booklet, A Friendly Guide to our Shabbat Service (PDF).
News from the Ritual Committee: Transliterated Siddur
We have a siddur with transliterations of all the prayers, along with the Hebrew and English. This beautiful prayer book, Eit Ratzon, also contains commentary about the various prayers, and, the pages of all the key parts of the Shabbat morning service are numbered with the page numbers from Sim Shalom. If you need some Hebrew assistance (and even if you don’t!), we urge you to try using Eit Ratzon and let us know how it works for you. We hope that this new book will encourage even more participation in our Shabbat morning services.
