Every Shabbat Morning at 10:00 AM - Shabbat Morning Worship and Study
A fairly brief Shabbat morning service in the Chapel that includes a reading from the Torah scroll and prayer, followed by in-depth Torah study and informal congeniality. Shabbat Morning Worship and Torah Study is led by members of our clergy team and lay leaders who engage us in a lively discussion on our most fundamental sacred text. The service and study typically ends around noon or a little after, and is informal in dress and demeanor. The group is welcoming and engaging and children and adults with any level and background (including new to study and prayer) are warmly welcomed to services and study (or one or the other if preferred). We also welcome life-cycle events including baby namings and aufrufs (pre-marriage blessings) to take place during this service.
B’Nai Mitzvah Shabbat Morning Service at 10:00 AM
Held in the Sanctuary on most Saturday mornings, this is the service at which the youth of our congregation step into their roles as "teachers of Torah, leaders of prayer." Temple Shalom prides itself that our Bar or Bat Mitzvah does not merely participate in the service, but truly leads the service from start to finish. 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. All are welcome to attend these services, which end at noon when there is one Bar or Bat Mitzvah, and at 12:30 p.m. when it is a double. Temple Shalom has a B’Nai Mitzvah service most weeks from March through June and September through December. (Check the calendar)
