The Torah service takes place from approximately 10:15-11:30 a.m. and includes the Torah reading, the Haftarah (prophetic reading), and an active discussion of the weekly Torah portion. The final section (Musaf) lasts from approximately 11:30-11:45 a.m. The service concludes with the Mourner’s Kaddish and a closing song. After the service, the entire congregation is invited for a Kiddush luncheon. Shabbat Morning Service Ushers Needed: We need two people at each Shabbat morning service to open the front doors and greet people by the main sanctuary doors. Sign up for the date(s) and slot(s) you would prefer here.

Childcare is available on Shabbat mornings from August-June, for children aged 2 years through second grade, beginning at 9:30 a.m. We offer a supervised play space for children as well as Shabbat stories and songs. The play space is located on the lower level of the main building, at the far end of the hallway.
