Celebrate a Kabbalat Shabbat with Beth Shalom

Congregation Beth Sholom, Lake County's oldest synagogue, will celebrate a Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday, Aug. 12, at 7 p.m.

Unlike a traditional Shabbat service, the Kabbalat Shabbat features a welcoming of Shabbat with music and song. The service, led by Rabbi Karen Allen's vocals and keyboard along with the music of world-class violinist Zoriy Zinger (formerly of the Russian Symphony Orchestra), is a warm, joyous, and festive Shabbat Service celebrating the Jewish Spirit.

Founded in the 1950s, Congregation Beth Sholom was the first synagogue to serve Lake County and the Tri-County area of The Villages. Services are held in the original building, which was completed in 1954. The congregation prides itself on the warm, welcoming atmosphere felt as soon as you enter the sanctuary. Rabbi Allen and the board of directors strive to provide a spiritual home to the synagogue's members and guests by blending Reform and Conservative liturgies, so that everyone will find something familiar in the service.

The public is invited to join with the members and experience the friendly environment of Congregation Beth Sholom, located at 315 North 13th Street in Leesburg, alongside The Melon Patch Theater. Please note that the entrance is on Center Street.
