At 9:30 AM, you can join us to daven (pray) Shacharit. Shacharit is the traditional morning prayer service found in the Siddur (Jewish prayer book). Most of the prayers are in Hebrew (we do provide translations and transliterations). Our Shacharit service on Shabbat mornings pauses after the Amidah.
(The 10:45 AM Family Service is ideal for first-time guests.)
At 10:45 AM, we begin our Family Service which includes music, a few prayers in Hebrew and English, reading from the Torah scroll, and the Rabbi’s D’rash (comments on the weekly Torah portion). Our Family service concludes with traditional Musaf prayers.
At 12:15 PM, we commence the Study Hour for adults and parallel classes for youth and children of elementary age. The Teaching Hour is usually a time of interactive topical study.
At 01:00 PM, we recite Kiddush (blessing over the wine and challah) and share an Oneg (lunch) together. Everyone is invited. We conclude mealtime with Grace after Meals (birkhat hamazon) in which we thank God for the food He has blessed us with.
At 2:30 PM, we gather for Mincha (afternoon liturgical prayers) after which we hold (sometimes informal, sometimes organized) discussions on various topics rated to sacred texts, Jewish life, halakha, midrash, family, and etc.
