Shabbat Services are like Snowflakes – no two are the same!

“Shabbat is a time to rest, to pray, to play…a time to be with the people we love.” -from “Gates of Prayer for Young People”.

Temple Emanuel Sinai offers a range of inspiring Shabbat services and study experiences to meet the needs of our congregants and guests, from the very young to the young-at-heart. We encourage you to participate fully in worship with us. We care deeply about the spiritual well-being of everyone in our community, and offer prayer experiences to guide and sustain you.

Shabbat Evening Services

Friday evenings at 7:30 PM, except the 2nd Friday night of the month when services are held at 6:30 PM with a pre-neg at 6:00 PM.  Most Friday night services include a D’var Torah from Rabbi Valerie. A full Torah service is scheduled at least twice a month. Please consult the weekly eNews email for more details including changes in schedule.

Led by Rabbi Valerie, there are a variety of Shabbat worship experiences each month. Musical selections are drawn from a full range of liturgical music – from classic arrangements to contemporary melodies that anyone who had a Jewish summer camp experience will likely know! We also have guest accompanists, as well as guest soloists.
