Shabbat Morning Services (Saturday mornings)
Every Shabbat Morning at 10:00 AM - Shabbat Morning Worship and Study
A fairly brief Shabbat morning service (including a reading from the Torah scroll), followed by in-depth study, intimate prayer, and informal congeniality. Meets in the Chapel. Rabbi Feshbach, Cantor Levine, Director of Education Rabbi Rachel Ackerman, and others share their scholarly insights and participate with us weekly in a lively discussion on our most fundamental sacred text
Shabbat Morning Service at 10:00 AM
Held in the Sanctuary, the participation of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah in this service reflects our pride in our students, and their commitment to continue their Jewish education represents, in turn, the best hope for the next generation of Jewish adults. Check the Temple calendar to see if a Sanctuary service is listed for the coming week.

Wednesday Morning Minyan, 7:30 AM
Every Wednesday morning at 7:30 AM, a group of people meet in the chapel to pray and learn—and then shmooze (chat) over bagels and coffee. Members and non-members are welcome at this informal shacharit (morning) service. No Hebrew literacy required. This service offers an opportunity to say Kaddish or to reflect on a lifecycle event in a sacred space.
Holidays and Festivals
Full partners in the spiritual renaissance taking place in the Reform movement, Temple Shalom has responded to members' desires for more - and more meaningful - celebrations throughout the year. Our growing calendar now includes a Second Day Rosh Hashanah service, congregational sukkah building, a Tu B'Shevat seder, a Second Night Congregational Seder and even a Clergy Matzah Brei Cook-Off in conjunction with the morning service the first day of Passover. Festival Morning Services now take place at their traditional times, often as joint services with other area Reform congregations.
