Weekly Services:

Erev Shabbat Services (Fridays at 6:15 pm) 
Friday evening worship services are led by clergy, accompanied by guitar, piano, organ or other musical instruments. We use the Mishkan T'filah prayer book and the service usually includes a d'var Torah or sermon.
Oneg Shabbat follows immediately after services (except for the second Shabbat of each month where it comes before service). Each service has its own feeling and intention.

Shabbat Morning Services (Saturdays at 10:30 am)
Shabbat morning worship use the Mishkan T'filah prayer book and features a Torah service, and often the celebration of a bar/t mitzvah. Everyone is always welcome to attend.

Tanakh Study (Saturday morning at 9:00 am)
Join us as we study the books of the Bible after Torah. No preparation necessary. Books are provided. For more information contact Rabbi Brett Krichiver.
