Erev Shabbat at JCSVV

Jan. 3

On Friday, Erev Shabbat services at the Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley begin at 7:30 p.m. led by Rabbi Alicia Magal. The Erev (Eve of) Shabbat service is a journey that everyone takes, following the "ladder" of the service through blessings, prayers, songs, and silent prayer, climbing "up the mountain" and returning to a state of groundedness with a sense of peace and a joyful heart. The Oneg refreshments are sponsored by Marsha and Hari Bunn in honor of Rita Bunn's birthday.
