Worship

Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears differently. When we pray together, we try to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices. With engaging sermons and stimulating teachings, our Rabbi shows us how the lessons from the past are relevant to our lives today.

Our services are fully egalitarian (men and women participate equally). We have found a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative. Services are a blend of Hebrew and English that helps everyone feel comfortable. Our prayer book, Mishkan T’filah, contains transliterations adjacent to all Hebrew prayers so that everyone, including guests, can participate easily and fully. We use both traditional and contemporary melodies.

Temple B’nai Israel is a “family-friendly” congregation. Children are welcome in our Sanctuary at all times, and for all services. We believe that children feeling wanted and welcome increases their sense of connection to our tradition and comfort with Jewish identity.

Join us to experience our interactive service. Our doors are open to all who seek to worship, learn and serve the community.

During the service members of the Minyan are encouraged to raise their hand if they have a question regarding the structure of the service, the meaning of a prayer, the interpretation of the Torah portion, or a comment regarding the practice of Judaism.

Our goal is to broaden the understanding of Judaism.  And through better understanding, establish each individual’s relationship with G-d.
