Services | Tzedek v'Shalom


newtownfriendsmeetingAt Tzedek v’Shalom, we aim to nurture each person’s need for spirituality through a strong sense of community and through our intimate services. At a TvS service, ancient wisdom addresses modern issues, and guitars, djembe drums, and songs sit side by side with meaningful prayer and meditation.

Our services are held in the historic Newtown Friends Meeting House (219 Court Street, Newtown, PA), built in 1817.  Generally, we have one Friday night service and one Saturday morning service at Newtown Friends, as well as one adult Torah study each month a member’s home, in addition to all of our holiday services.

Here are the kind of services we are  holding for the 5773/2012-2013 year:

-Second Fridays: A vibrant, all singing Shabbat service alternatively led by Rabbi Anna (with accompaniment by talented local musician Ralph Posmontier on the drums) or by congregants with a variety of musical guests, always held on the second Friday of each month.  Vegetarian potluck to follow.  All ages are welcome, including families with children.

-Monthly Shabbat morning service and Torah study: Meditation, music and prayer followed by community learning on the weekly Torah portion.  Led by Rabbi Anna and members of the TvS community

-Havdallah events: We combine the short, sweet ceremony that concludes Shabbat with a movie and discussion, or an informal get together.
