Monthly Meditative Service

On the first Shabbat of every month, Rabbi Naftali Citron will lead a meditation service upstairs at the Carlebach Shul from 9:00 am - 10:30 am, followed by a Bagels and Whitefish Kiddush.

The meditation is based on both Chassidic and Kabbalistic contemplative traditions and uses the traditional siddur as a spring board to attain higher levels of consciousness.

Outreach is innate to The Carlebach Shul, a natural part of the life-giving enthusiasm generated by a Reb Shlomo concert, a teaching or a prayer. Out of this united effort a way of life has emerged at the Shul, a direct reflection of the tremendous commitment of those who pray there. The traditional world meets the modern world around the Shabbos table where magnificent meals are served with teachings, stories or songs of Reb Shlomo and other Chassidic melodies. Observance and learning become so intense, exposure to Judaism so strong, that often secular Jews feel they become Jewish by "osmosis," while those exposed to more "everyday Jewishness" are surprised by the amount of in-depth learning and understanding of the tradition the congregants share. In fact, the uniqueness of our outreach program has recently been recognized by the Covenant Foundation -- a program of the distinguished Crown Family Foundation of Chicago and The Jewish Education Service of North America -- with a grant award to The Carlebach Shul, the only Orthodox shul to be so recognized. This award is now being implemented to replicate the Shabbos experience in ways that will engage communities with diverse levels of education, exposure and experience to the richness of Jewish spirituality using traditional approaches to prayer, learning and ritual.
