Jewish values and practices infuse daily life at Avoda. All our meals are kosher and each begins with the hamotzi and ends with the birkat hamazon blessings. Shabbat services are held on Friday nights and Saturday mornings in our beautiful lakeside outdoor chapel site amid towering pines. Havdalah and Tisha B’Av services are both meaningful and memorable, as is our annual trip to Israel for staff and alumni. We are proud to be part of K’lal Yisrael, the larger Jewish community.
