PICT2643Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears in a different way. When we pray together, we try to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices. With their engaging sermons and stimulating teachings, our Rabbis show us how the lessons from the past are relevant to our lives today. 

Through a wide range of truly meaningful spiritual experiences, we offer something for everyone, including weekly Friday Night Shabbat Services, monthly Saturday Hot Topic Shabbat Services, Monthly Kabbalat Shabbat Services, monthly Fusion (intergenerational) Shabbat Services and Dinner, and monthly Shabbat Shirah Services (a service for families with children from birth through first grade led by Sarah Bornstein Howard).

Our services are fully egalitarian (men and women participate equally). We believe we have found a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative. Services are in Hebrew and English. We use both traditional and contemporary melodies. People who attend vary from those with Orthodox backgrounds to Jewish by choice.
