Congregation Shaare Emeth
11645 Ladue Road
St. Louis, Missouri 63141
Simchat Shabbat is a joy-filled, intergenerational, participatory service held on the first Friday evening of every month. Cantor Warner, Lucy Greenbaum and a small rock band lead us in high energy, contemporary music, and birthday blessings will be offered as well. While Simchat Shabbat is embraced by members of all ages, it includes a special component designed just for religious school age children. After our birthday blessings (about half-way through the service) children are invited to join a member of our clergy for a separate Torah service that will include age-appropriate music, a story and a special Torah reading led by our teens. While children are participating in this program, the rest of the Congregation will remain in the sanctuary for a sermon and concluding prayers. Both experiences will conclude together with a closing song led by our children.
Join us for a pre-service nosh (light snacks and beverages) beginning at 5:15 p.m. in our lobby.
