CLARK—Everyone, Cantor, congregants and staff, at Temple Beth O’r/Beth Torah, 111 Valley Road in Clark, is busily preparing for an inspirational Friday night Shabbat Service, replete with music, song, and sweets, on Aug. 6.
The night will begin at 7 p.m., before the start of Shabbat, to allow the musical group “Psalm 150” to set the tone for the evening as it plays soulful melodies. As the last traces of light begin to wane, Cantor Steven Stern will lead the Beth O’r /Beth Torah family and guests in welcoming the Sabbath with a unique Friday evening prayer service, one which examines the question, “Why are we here?”
Following the prayer service, participants will be treated to an array of “chocolate and other delicacies” which will reward the mind and fuel the body.
Newly elected Beth O’r/Beth Torah co-president Lillian Makow has a special take on the upcoming evening, She calls the Aug. 6 service, “A time to relax and set aside our weekday concerns and demands”, and extends an invitation to “contemplate the beauty and joy in our lives.”
Cantor Steven Stern stresses this is only one night of an entire year of Shabbat services. “While this evening may whet one’s appetite for Judaism, our Synagogue will continue to satisfy each and every week.”
Congregation Beth O’r/Beth Torah has been serving the Jewish community in Clark and its surrounding environs for over 50 years with a diverse menu of religious, cultural and educational programming. At 111 Valley Road in Clark, the synagogue is centrally located close to the Garden State Parkway Exit 135. The building is handicapped accessible with a large, well-lit parking lot.
All interested parties are invited to this unique Friday Shabbat experience. Call 1-732-381-8403 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
