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 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 believe we have found a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative. Services are primarily in Hebrew. Our siddur (prayerbook) – Mishkan T’Filah has Hebrew, transliterations, and English on the same page so all can participate at the level they feel most comfortable. We use both traditional and contemporary melodies. People who attend vary from those with Orthodox backgrounds to Jews by choice.
