At our weekly Friday evening services, we join together as a community to celebrate Shabbat. People of all ages enjoy the opportunity to come together for an evening of reflection and worship. These services give everyone a place to greet and be greeted by friends and to make new ones. Together we share joyous occasions and we offer support to one another at challenging times.
Our worship begins at 7:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. Though families are welcome at all of our services, these monthly Family Services are often geared especially for families with children. Often include Religious School students and other youth participate in these services. We also invite members and guests of all ages to come up to the bema during the service for a special Birthday Blessing.
Friday evening worship begins at 8:00 p.m. on all other Friday evenings. Sermon topics range from current events to timely and relevant discussions of the Torah portion, giving new insight into our Jewish tradition and contemporary issues. Monthly Anniversary Blessings are offered on the last Friday of each month.
During the year, we also gather with families of our youngest children for "Tot Shabbat" celebrations. These services are typically held at 6:30 p.m. prior to other worship. The rabbi and cantor lead brief services in the sanctuary followed by snacks for all families.
Shabbat morning minyan, which includes Torah study, is held every Saturday morning throughout the entire year at 9:15 a.m.Young people become Bar and Bat Mitzvah at Shabbat worship held in the sanctuary; these services begin at 10:00 a.m.
We celebrate all of the festivals during the Jewish year. We hope that you will join with us in worship and in your rejoicing of life.
