FAQ

How often do you have services?

We have services on Friday evenings at 6:30pm, on Saturday morning at 10:30am, and on all major Jewish holidays. Friday evening services are preceded by a wine and cheese reception. [Because of the pandemic, we are not having our Oneg before services.] You may join us for online services on our Facebook Group with an online schmooze beginning at 6:00pm. To attend Friday evening in-person services, you must complete a reservation form online as capacity is limited. 

Our Munchkin Minyan service for families with children seven and under is held once a month on Shabbat (Saturdays). Munchkin Minyan will resume in the fall. 

Everyone is invited to attend these services and programs. Please join us!

What do I receive for my membership commitment?

Benefits of membership include High Holy Day tickets and numerous free learning and social activities.  In addition, our Rabbi, Cantor, staff, and members will be there to support you through life’s challenges and joys. You will also be supporting our synagogue and providing an environment for nurturing the next generation of Jews. Our members find they receive so much more than their monetary contribution!
