Religious services on Shabbat, Festivals and High Holy Days are traditional in form and progressive in content. Members participate in leading services, chanting Torah, or presenting a D'var Torah. Women and men participate fully and equally in all areas of synagogue life - from minyan to aliyah, from Torah reading to serving as cantor or Rabbi.

If you would like to participate by chanting Torah or Haftarah, or leading some part of services, please contact


Serving the Heart, Mind and Spirit

Our prayer books (Kol Haneshamah) are gender neutral. Hebrew prayers are accompanied by a transliteration as well as a translation, to encourage greater understanding and participation.

Congregants are encouraged to express their convictions and voice their questions in an environment of mutual respect, and to apply what we learn through social action, home ritual and mutual support during times of joy and sorrow.

Schedule of services

Shabbat services are Saturday morning at 10 am. Childcare is available. There is a Kiddush lunch every Shabbat, which may be sponsored by individuals or families having a simcha, or may be potluck. All attendees at services are always invited to share in the Kiddush.
