Worship

Prayer 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 Daily Minyan, Weekly Friday Night and Shabbat Services, Tot Shabbat, Pajama Shabbat, Junior Congregation, Chai Young Adult Services, Summer Beach Services, and a monthly Family Musical Shabbat Service and Dinner.

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 primarily in English. We use both traditional and contemporary melodies. People who attend vary from those with Orthodox backgrounds to Jewish-by-choice.
