Our Services

Friday night (@6:00pm) and Saturday morning (@10:00am) Shabbat services are held every week throughout the year. Various types of prayer services are offered to meet the needs of our diverse community.

Attire is business casual, and Kippot (head coverings) and Tallit (prayer shawls) are available though not required.

Our informal Saturday morning minyan is an opportunity to ask questions about the service and to discuss the weekly Torah portion. Don’t miss this intimate and uplifting Jewish experience.

Music

A central part of our services and celebrations, music elevates our time together. We pride ourselves on being a “singing congregation.” Everyone is encouraged to participate by joining with our rabbi and musicians in song.

Check out our Spotify playlist and get familiar with some of the Shabbat tunes you’ll hear when you come to services. We can’t wait for you to add your voice!
