Thursday minyan is at 8:30 a.m. every week
Mondays: If you need to say kaddish on a Monday, please contact the office and we will gather a minyan on Monday mornings on request.
Thursday minyan is followed by a brief lesson on Pirkei Avot – the Ethics of the Sages. Each week we examine one saying from this 1800 year-old text on how to be a good person.
Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday evening is at 6:30 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.
We follow the Conservative liturgy for our Shabbat morning service (Siddur Sim Shalom). The Torah service normally begins around 10 am, and we use the triennial cycle for Torah reading, with members of the congregation participating is Torah honors and the weekly Haftarah reading. The rabbi chants the Shacharit and Musaf services and usually chants the Torah portion. Normally, on the last Shabbat of the month, services are entirely lay-led. After services, please stay and partake of the kiddush in the social hall, so that we can extend a friendly welcome to you.
Prayer for the healing of the sick.
A special prayer naming those who are ill 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 during the prayer.
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.
