Saturday Morning Worship Opportunities

  • On most Saturdays, our Shabbat morning service is led by our B’nei Mitzvah in the Blumenthal Sanctuary. The service includes prayer, music, and learning. On Saturdays without a B’nei Mitzvah, we hold services in the Archer Chapel. If you are a guest at a bar or bat mitzvah, we warmly welcome you on this special, joyous day for both the family and our larger Jewish community. Our B’nei Mitzvah leads our community in worship. The B’nei Mitzvah symbolizes the coming of age of a Jewish child, and celebrates a deep commitment to Judaism through study, spiritual practice, and tikkun olam, or making the world a better place.
  • Continuing Shabbat Morning Worship Times
    • 9:30 am Torah Study in the Dale & Larry Polsky Beit Midrash
    • 11:00 am Shabbat Morning Service
  • Tot Shabbat – (9:00 am start time begins in July)
    • 9:00 am – Once a month, we have a special Shabbat morning celebration geared towards pre-school age children and their families. The service is filled with singing, dancing, laughter and prayer. Join other families with young children to explore the wonder and value of Jewish community. Stay after each service to socialize, nosh, and participate in our monthly craft time.
