Through a wide range of truly meaningful spiritual experiences, we offer something for everyone, including weekly Friday night (Kabbalat Shabbat) services, along with regular No-Shush Shabbats designed for our younger members, and special services for holidays. Kabbalat Shabbat Services, currently held via Zoom, begin at 6:30 p.m. and last about an hour. Shabbat morning services are currently on hold due to the Covid pandemic, but we hope to resume as soon as possible. At that time, Saturday morning services will begin at 10:30 a.m. and last until noon.
Services are held for all of the major Jewish holidays and the High Holy Days, as well as a number of commemorative occasions.
Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears in a different way. When we pray together, we try to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices. With their engaging sermons and stimulating teachings, our Rabbi, lay leaders and guest speakers show us how the lessons from the past are relevant to our lives today.
Our services are fully egalitarian (i.e., men and women participate equally). We believe we have found a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative. Traditional prayers are primarily in Hebrew, with many readings in English. Music is a very important part of our services, and we use both traditional and contemporary melodies. Attendees from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds find our services rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable.
