Shabbat Mincha/Ma'ariv

Service times vary, please see the calendar at the top of the page.
Shabbat afternoons are a special time at the HEA. Mincha services start in the late afternoon (see above), followed by seudah sh'lisheet (or shalosh shudas) shared with friends and the community. After some rousing z'mirot and benching of the birkat ha'mazon, the evening is concluded with the Ma'ariv and Havdalah services.
Join us at any of our services to recite Kaddish for a loved one. Contact the office if you plan to attend a Torah service so you can be given an Aliyah in memory of your loved one’s Yahrtzeit.

Unaccompanied children are not permitted in the school hallways or on the playground.
