Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears in a different way. When we pray together, we try to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices. With their engaging sermons and stimulating teachings, our Rabbis show us how the lessons from the past are relevant to our lives today.
Through a wide range of truly meaningful spiritual experiences, we offer something for everyone, including weekly Friday Night Shabbat Services, Monthly Tot Shabbat and Family Services, and regular creative Shabbat experiences including Beach Shabbat, Campfire Shabbat, Hiking Shabbat and more. We have been known to enjoy whimsical yet moving services including Broadway Shabbat, Classic Rock Shabbat, Disney Shabbat, Surfs Up Shabbat and Shabbat Shal-Ohm Meditation Shabbat.
Our services are fully egalitarian (men and women participate equally). We believe we have found a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative. Services are primarily in English. We use both traditional and contemporary melodies. People who attend vary from those with Orthodox backgrounds to Jewish-by-choice.
