Weekday Minyan

This lay-led minyan was established by congregants wishing to say Kaddish within our community, and is open to all.. The service takes place in our Mishkan (chapel) on Wednesday mornings at 6:30 a.m.

Erev Shabbat

This Friday evening service is led by the Rabbi and Cantor using the Mishkan Tefillah Siddur. The service begins at 8:00 p.m. The Cantor may teach the congregation a new song, a familiar text with a new melody, or lead us in old favorites. The weekly Torah portion is read, and the Rabbi offers a D'var Torah. During the year we invite special speakers to join us. We also celebrate life-cycle events such as baby naming and auf ruf. At the conclusion of the service the entire congregation joins together for an Oneg.
