Come Home to Barnert!


Our Barnert-style Shabbats have moved to Zoom and Hybrid gatherings.  We still join together for music and study and Shabbat breaths and friendship.  Check out our online calendar for our special musical Shabbats with incredible guest musicians as well as our themed Shabbats with guest speakers on relevant and important topics.
