Types of Services
Everyone is welcome to this brief, meaningful service. Held at 7:20 am and 5:45 pm weekdays, and 9:30 am and 5:45 pm Sundays and national holidays.
Every Friday evening at 6 pm we usher in Shabbat with a joyous and music-filled service:
Traditional: Our tranquil Kabbalat Shabbat service features the warmth of the traditional Nusach Hatefilla (special music of the day). The melodies are familiar and inviting.
Carlebach Service: Lift your spirits by attending one of our Friday evening Carlebach services, held about once a month. The soul stirring niggunim (melodies) of the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach help us begin Shabbat with joy and devotion.
Friday Night Live: About once a month we welcome Shabbat with a special service featuring our choir or band. The music may be some of America’s most talented singer-songwriters or the Hassidic style of repeating a melody over and over to release us from the confines of rationality and allow our creative-emotional side to come into play. Sing, dance, celebrate, meditate, find love, peace and rest on Shabbat.
Family Fridays for Families with Young Children:
Families with young children through Kindergarten are invited to a special Shabbat worship service just for them. The service is designed for the youngest family members with singing, stories and prayers in an appropriately short duration. There is often a dinner preceding the service. Once every three months.
Makom for Young Adults hosts a Shabbat dinner and prayer service the third Friday of each month for people in their 20s & 30s to “refresh, recharge, renew.” The evening typically starts with Kabbalat Shabbat service at 6 pm, followed by a 7 pm potluck dinner.
Services begin at 9:30 am, led by our Rabbis and Hazzan. Feel free to take a book from the Shabbat Reading Shelf as you enter the Sanctuary. On many Shabbat mornings you will find an adult or family learning opportunity taking place. There is a soundproof privacy room overlooking the bimah (pulpit) for parents with active children not in babysitting. Join Us!
