Worship at Temple Shalom is a joyous expression of music, learning, laughter and connecting. Young or young at heart, everyone is welcome to join together for Shabbat, Holidays and special gatherings. 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 engaging sermons and stimulating teachings, our Clergy show us how the lessons from the past are relevant to our lives today.
Through a wide range of spiritual experiences we offer something for everyone, including weekly Friday night Shabbat services, Saturday morning services, monthly Saturday morning Munchkin Minyan, and Munchkin Minyan North, weekly Torah Study, and adult and family education programs and events. Join us for Davening and Dining each week after services and for our COVIDeo Conversation on Zoom the last week of the month.
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 a blend of Hebrew and English that helps everyone feel comfortable. Our prayer book, Mishkan T’filah, contains transliterations adjacent to all Hebrew prayers so that everyone, including guests, can participate easily and fully. We use both traditional and contemporary melodies. People who attend vary from those with Orthodox backgrounds to Jews by choice.
