Our Rabbi

Service Schedule

Shabbat Services begin every Friday at 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. Our services are egalitarian, and participatory. Congregation members chant Haftorah, and assist with the leading of services. In a pinch, congregants chant Torah, but this is usually done (excellently, we may add) by our Rabbi.

As a result of COVID, our services are hybrid.  Contact the office for zoom instructions.

Junior Congregation

Ritual Committee

The Ritual Committee is lead by our Rabbi and by our Gabbai Joel Stern. It determines the “Minhag” or ritual customs of the synagogue. The committee meets periodically to address issues and concerns of our diverse membership. We usually take a liberal position but one which does not conflict with the “Responsa” or the Rabbinical Assembly’s Committee of Law and Standards.
