SHABBAT SERVICES

Shabbat Services are held every Friday evening at 7 p.m.in the Historic Chapel

1207 Kensington Dr. High Point, NC 27262 
 

We welcome all interested in attending.​ All services are streamed via Zoom for those who desire to attend remotely as well as those who need to attend remotely because of illness, weather, or distance. 

Services and Community Events

Our services are held in our Historic Chapel. We host Community Meals on various holidays, Israeli style barbecues, our Annual Aliyah Breakfast, Latke luncheon on Hanukkah, and Onegs after the Friday evening Shabbat Service when the Rabbi is leading services. All food events are held in our Cub Room in the same building. Our congregation supports Mobile Meals of High Point. We are the co-founders with Church Women United in 1971.  

 

The Chapel contains the original Bimah and pews from the 1927 Synagogue, the First Synagogue built by the Congregation. The entire Bimah and Ark assembly were brought to the new Synagogue piece by piece and re-assembled in the Chapel some 60 years ago. Everything you see (Menorahs, Torah Table, Bimah Chairs, etc.) are original from the 1927 Synagogue.

Shabbat Services with Rabbi Kosovske

Rabbi Howard Kosovske leads our Shabbat Services one Shabbat a month. Torah Study usually follows the Saturday morning Shabbat Services. A Festive Oneg follows the Friday evening Shabbat Service when the Rabbi leads the service.


Rabbi Kosovske will also be coming to High Point to lead High Holy Day Services and other Holiday Services through the year. Cantor Salkov will also be returning for all the High Holy Day Services as well.
