//Shabbat

EREV SHABBAT SERVICES are held Friday evenings at 7:00 pm with Rabbi Matthew Zerwekh and Cantorial Soloist Kelly Onickel leading the congregation in prayer and song. An oneg follows the service.

SHABBAT MORNING SERVICES are held Saturday mornings at 10:30 am with Rabbi Zerwekh and our Cantorial Soloist leading. Services include Torah reading and interactive learning. When we celebrate a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, the student also leads the service and Torah reading. A kiddush follows the service.

TOT SHABBAT SERVICES are generally held monthly on either Friday 5:45 pm on Saturday mornings before Shabbat morning services. Check out the Temple Calendar on this website, the Bulletin and weekly emails for details.

YACHAD SCHOOL FAMILY SERVICES – During the school year our Yachad Religious School students participate in and help lead some of our Friday Erev Shabbat Services. These services are especially family-friendly and will be held November 9, January 4 and March 8.

SATURDAY MORNING TORAH STUDY is led by Rabbi Zerwekh on Saturday mornings at 9:30 am  from September to June. Study does not require a command of Hebrew or a particular level of existing knowledge of the Torah. This year Torah Study will focus on both Torah and Haftarah. Try it for one session and see how exciting, fun, provocative and profound Torah study at Temple Emanu-El can be. Bagels, cream cheese, coffee, tea at each session

Prepare yourself for the study of the Torah, for the knowledge of it is not yours by inheritance ~ Pirkei Avot

SUMMER SHABBAT SERVICES are often held in  our  Garden Sanctuary, weather permitting.

Our siddur – prayer book is Mishkan T’Filah.

Children are welcome at all Shabbat services!
