Instrumental & Traditional Shabbat Services

Our monthly Tefillateinu is a highly-participatory, somewhat-abbreviated Shabbat morning service with active musical accompaniment.

We hope you will join us for this joy-filled service and invite your family and friends to join you. Because here is the thing – the secret to an amazing service is not the guitar or the drum. It isn’t even the beautiful voices of the service leaders. The secret to an amazing service is YOU .  .  .  it’s your presence.

Our Traditional Weekly Shabbat service features traditional Shabbat morning melodies, a triennial Torah reading (1/3 the of the entire Torah reading) and opportunities for congregants to have aliyot to the Torah and other honors. Expect a mostly Hebrew service with active announcements from Rabbi Glickman about where we are in the service, and a sermon.

In addition to the Traditional Shabbat morning service, is our weekly Library Minyan service. The lay-lead Library Minyan is known for its friendly inclusiveness, the all Hebrew service, minimal announcements, a full Torah reading and divrei Torah (Teachings on the weekly Torah portion) delivered by congregants.

For our younger congregants, there are Tot Shabbat and Shabbat Kids Club which gather monthly. 

During the stay-at-home period we will:
