Chaverim Shabbat.  At Shaarey Tikvah, we love celebrating Shabbat together with our shul family.  Family Fridays is a program for families with children 0 - 18.  We celebrate a musical and fun Kabbalat Shabbat service and then enjoy Shabbat dinner together as a community.  Family Fridays are held from 5:45 pm to 7:30 pm several times a year.  

Family Havdalah. In this annual winter evening program, families gather together to bid farewell to Shabbat.  There are crafts and activities as well as singing and a light dinner.
