Family Fridays! Kids take center stage once a month for our 7pm Family Fridays Service. Using a special prayer book, children lead prayers and songs. There is a Torah service and an opportunity for all participants to view the Torah’s beautiful script as it is read.
B’nei Mitzvah Services: These Shabbat services are milestones in the lives of our students and their families, and are particularly special in the outpouring of love and support from their friends and our community.
Baby Namings: Friday nights are the perfect time for your new baby to be welcomed into the community and given his or her Jewish name.
Is it ok to bring my kids? Children are welcome and encouraged at all services.
Is music played or is it all prayer? Many services are made even more special by the beautiful musical accompaniment of Brian Kelly on the guitar and vocals.
Do I need to bring anything? ONLY you! and if you wish, your family & friends!
Will I understand the service? Fluency in Hebrew is not necessary or expected.
What if the Rabbi is sick or unavailable? When Rabbi Lauren is unavailable, our dynamic ritual chair, Jay Schmitt, leads the congregation in worship.
Will there be any food available? Temple families host the Oneg Shabbat, delicious food and fellowship.
