Welcome to Congregation
Shirat Ha Yam

We invite you to experience Shabbat thirty miles at sea with Shirat Ha Yam! Our services are conducted at Hendrix Hall in the Unitarian Universalist Church and are led by Rabbi Gary Bretton-Granatoor who comes one weekend per month, visiting rabbis, cantors and local laity. Our speaker program features noteworthy authors and leaders. Each service is followed by an Oneg Shabbat. Services are a great place to meet the Jewish community of Nantucket.

From Memorial Day through the High Holy Days, we sponsor weekly Shabbat services at 7:00PM, ticket-free High Holy Day services, study groups, discussion dinners and special events. We offer assistance at life-cycle events including weddings, baby-namings, funerals and Minyans. Our religous school operates year ’round, tuition free. Here we educate Nantucket’s Jewish youngsters through Bar and Bat Mitzvah.

The Board of Trustees and members of Congregation join us in welcoming you to Nantucket. For further information call our office at 508.228.6588 or e-mail us at
