Shabbat Worship

Shabbat Service

Temple Israel’s religious services are uplifting and full of congregational singing and the joy of a community at prayer.   We are a congregation that loves to sing, and you will soon find yourself joining in as you recognize your favorite melodies and learn new ones from our vast heritage.   Services are held every Friday. The first Friday of the month our service begins earlier to better accommodate family worship and are often led by the children in our Hebrew School.   Saturday Shabbat morning services are dedicated to prayer and Torah study and we often have the pleasure of celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.  

Friday Night Live

The third Friday of the month is devoted to Friday Night Live, a contemporary style service of music, dance and reflections, Friday Night Live is a warm and inviting way to spend Shabbat.  The service includes our outstanding Band and Choir.  The concept is simple - our prayers are music and dance.  The music is a patchwork quilt of our new and old melodies.  As Reb Nachman of Breslov used to say "Get into the habit of singing a tune.  It will give you new life and fill you with joy.”  Friday Night Live is on the third Friday of every month at 7:00 PM.

Family Services

The Family Services at Temple Israel are geared for the young and the young at heart!    The Hebrew classes from our Religious School often lead the service.   Our Family Service is on the first Friday of every month at 6:30 PM.

Shabbat Morning Torah Study

When one studies Torah it is as if they are praying.  Our Torah Study Chevrah meets every Saturday morning at 9 am for Bagels and Bible.  It is always a lively discussion and the warm and camaraderie make for a morning filled with the joy of learning Torah. Come and join us.

Shabbat Morning Worship

The peace one can find on Shabbat can be found in our Temple on Saturday mornings when we come together to worship the Holy One and the word of Torah. We often have the pleasure of celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah or other life cycle event and we always end with a pot luck Kiddush luncheon.   Please check the monthly bulletin for Saturday service dates.
