Weekly Services

Friday night services are held every week with a few exceptions (like Apple Blossom weekend, when it is almost impossible to get to the synagogue because streets are blocked off.) 

On the weekends that Rabbi Grumbacher is with us, informal Shabbat Morning Services-In-The-Round will be held at 9:30 am, except on B'nai Mitzvah weekends. 

For all services, check the calendar on the HOME page for service times
