Every other year our congregation brings in a visiting rabbi to spend the weekend with us.
The shabbaton begins with Shabbat dinner, singing, and services and continues Saturday morning with services and lunch. We fill the afternoon with additional programming, and our guests lead a delightful evening. We often have a Sunday morning educational session as well. Visitors come from all over Madison and the Midwest to celebrate this special event with us.
Past guests include Rabbi Marcia Praeger and Hazzan Jack Kessler, Rabbis Arthur Waskow and Phyllis Berman, Rabbi Chava Bahle, Cantor Linda Hirschhorn, Rabbi Kevin Hale, Rabbi Jeff Roth, Rabbi Rochelle Robins, Soferet Yonah Lavery-Yisraeli, and Rabbi Tirzah Firestone.
