Service Times

Erev Shabbat – Friday evenings beginning at 7:30 PM
There’s something different each week, from our third Friday Shabbos Beat, inspiring lessons from Rabbi Riter, Cantor Bernstein, and our amazing lay service leaders. Services are followed by a light oneg and time to connect with our community.

Shabbat Morning – Saturday mornings beginning at 10:15 AM
More like a minyan, a small community gathering, we sing, pray, read from and discuss Torah together. Ask questions and share ideas in a spiritual and progressive celebration. Services are followed by a light Kiddish.
