Services

Regular services:

Monday and Thursday minyan is at 8:00 a.m.
This is followed by teaching and questions with your Rabbi.  The group is usually small so discussion is encouraged and individuals can ask questions that engross them.   The subject might be history,  the weekly Torah or Haftarah portions, current affairs or biblical exegesis*.  The one thing it will NEVER be is boring!

*exposition or explanation

Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday evening is at 7:30 p.m.
This is a short service with much singing and some English readings, in which congregants are encouraged to join.

Shabbat service on Saturday is at 9:00 a.m.
A study session based on the Torah reading and the Haftarah of the week is conducted by the rabbi from 9:00 to 9:45 am, followed by the normal preliminary, service, shahrith, Torah and concluding services.

Prayer for the healing of the sick.   

A special prayer is recited at the end of the Torah service.  If you wish to include the name of a relative or a friend, you are requested to call the office before Wednesday so that we may include the name(s) in our weekly bulletin.   You may also stand up and mention the name(s) of persons you wish to include in the prayer during the service.

Yahrzeit. 

It is customary to mention the names of the persons whose yahrzeit will occur in the week which will follow, before we recite the Mourners Kaddish at the end of the service. The congregation has a list, but you may call the office before Wednesday to add a name to the printed list which will be included in the bulletin.

We use the triennial cycle of Torah reading and members participate in conducting the service and reading Haftarah.
