About our Worship Services
Our main services are traditional and mostly lay led. We are an egalitarian community, and welcome both men and women to wear a head covering during services. Both men and women also wear a tallit if they choose. We encourage our congregation to dress how they feel most comfortable for Shabbat services. Often times, people feel more comfortable dressing up for Shabbat, but we are welcoming of less formal attire as well. Children are invited to stay with their parents in the sanctuary. We have a “Pray and Play” room for adults to be able to see and hear the service while with a child who is playing a little too loud for the service, and often provide child care on Shabbat mornings.
