Shabbat Services

Shabbat morning services in our sanctuary are participatory, warm, inspiring and egalitarian. Our Shabbat morning service begins at 9:00 a.m. and typically ends between 11:30-12:00. The Torah service begins at 10:00 a.m. We join together in a warm and inviting community kiddush lunch every week following services. Visitors are always warmly welcomed!

Fridays at 7:30 p.m.
Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.

Saturday Children and Family services

The Service
The Shabbat service is divided into three sections. The first section, the Preliminary Service, includes portions of the Book of Psalms. The second section, the Shacharit, includes the Torah Service. The last section, the Musaf, has additional prayers recalling services held in the ancient Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The Mourner’s Kaddish (memorial prayer) is recited in memory of those who have died. At the conclusion of the service, we recite Kiddush (the blessing over the wine) and Hamotzi (the blessing over the bread) before partaking of a festive meal called Kiddush.       

At the beginning of the Torah service, the Torah is removed from the Aron Kodesh (Holy Ark). It is carried in procession around the Sanctuary for all to see and touch. During the Torah service, Jewish adults receive Aliyot (honor of being “called to the Bimah” to recite Torah blessings). Reading from the Torah requires great skill and preparation. Other honors throughout the service include opening or closing the Aron Kodesh and carrying, lifting, or dressing the Torah. At the conclusion of the service, the Torah is carried in procession around the Sanctuary and returned to the Ark.
