Attending a Jewish service can be a matter of comfort or anxiety, depending on how familiar you are with the liturgy and community. There is an anecdote about a person attending services with their partner for the first time. On the car ride home, they complained to their partner no one ever told them the secret password to get into the synagogue. “Everyone kept saying ‘Shabbat Shalom’ to one another all the time, I had no idea we had to learn a password to get in, I just snuck in after you and hoped no one would notice.”
We strongly feel that services should be assessable and rich for everyone involved, from the Talmud Scholar to the person coming for the very first time. As a result, we try to present interesting and powerful content in plain language. If you are interested attending religious services, please contact us for more details.
We believe that religious life is facilitated through good food and often attempt to have services in conjunction with dinner or lunch. We routinely hold Friday night services and meals either in private homes or local synagogues as we do not operate our own facility.
Outside of regularly occurring religious services, if you would like to engage a Rabbi through our organization for a life-cycle event (Marriage, Brit Milah, Funeral, Bar/t Mitzvah, Building Dedication, and so on) please let us know.
