From September through June, Erev Shabbat services begin at 7 pm and are held in the Marcus Sanctuary. The first Erev Shabbat service of the month is especially family-friendly, and includes special blessings for our children and for those celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and other simchas during the month. Our Simchat Shabbat Band provides lively and uplifting klezmer music during one service each month, and once each month we observe a meditative Shabbat Neginah, filled with beautiful, inspiring music.

Adat Shabbat Services: Monthly, September through June (6:00 p.m. for Dinner; 7:00 p.m. for short service only)

Our newest Shabbat experience, Adat Shabbat services take place in our social hall beginning at 6:00 p.m. most months from September through June. The service includes a Shabbat dinner highlighted with joyful songs, prayers, and interactive participation. Bring your family, bring your friends; this is a service you won't want to miss! For those not inclined to join us for dinner, a very brief service including the Mourner's Kaddish, follows the dinner. Reservations for the dinner are required by the Wednesday before Adat Shabbat so that we can ensure there is enough food, and voluntary donations to cover the cost of the meal are greatly appreciated.  Check our calendar to confirm the dates of our Adat Shabbat services.

Summer Courtyard Services: Throughout July and August (6:15 p.m.)

Brief, easy-flowing and inspiring worship services in our open-air courtyard under our beautiful tree, as the sun slowly sets. Enjoy a snack and a schmooze with friends before services, and stay for a festive oneg after services. During July when our Rabbi is on vacation, our congregants offer thoughtful Words of Torah during each service. Come as you are and enjoy a peaceful respite from the week's work.

Tot Shabbat Services: Monthly (Friday 5:30 p.m.Saturday 9:00 a.m., or Saturday at 5 pm including Havdalah)

At all Tot Shabbat programs children actively participate in this most child-friendly of services, designed to teach even the youngest children about the joy of Shabbat. Lasting about 30 minutes, the service is led by our clergy or one of our early childhood specialists. 

Our Friday Evening Tot Shabbat services are followed by either an Adat Shabbat family-friendly dinner service, a free child-friendly dinner, or a potluck dinner, while our Shabbat morning service includes a free light brunch and children's activity sponsored by our Membership Committee.  Tot Shabbat Havdalah nights may include a pajama party, a dance party, or other fun program! Invite your friends - Tot Shabbat is open to all. Temple membership is not required. Click here here for more information. 

Shabbat Morning Services

Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (B'nai Mitzvah)

Services that include B'nai Mitzvah invite our students to lead the majority of the liturgy. The setting is more formal, but services are always open to our entire congregation and community. 

Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. (No B'nai Mitzvah)

Services that do not include B'nai Mitzvah are led by our clergy in a casual and more intimate yet still traditional style. The liturgy is a bit fuller, we read and study from the Sefer Torah and engage in interactive Divrei Torah led by the Rabbi or a regular service participant. There are many opportunities to participate in the service for those who choose to do so.
