One shul, two Kabbalat Shabbat services

Temple Israel and Jewish Community Center in Ridgewood, two congregations within one community, offers separate Conservative and Reconstructionist Shabbat services.

Kabbalat Shabbat services will begin at 8 p.m. The Conservative service is held in the main sanctuary, while the Reconstructionist minyan meets on the center’s second floor. Both congregations come together for a festive Oneg Shabbat on Friday nights and for Kiddush lunch on Shabbat morning, after both groups’ separate services have ended.

All services and special events are open to the community. Go to TI-JCC’s website,, for information.
