Anyone may attend one of our Friday evening or Saturday morning services. Any Jewish family is invited to attend, to pray, and/or to experience our temple for possible membership. Non-Jews are invited to observe a Jewish religious service. No advance notice is required to attend services, unless you are part of larger group. Please see above for information on group tours. Before or after services, a representative of our Board of Directors (look for people wearing name badges) or one of our members will be glad to answer questions about services and the prayer books we use.
When attending our services, we ask that you follow some basic guidelines to respect all those who are worshiping. We ask that you refrain from talking, turn off all cell phones, and do not take photos during services. Younger children must be supervised at all times and we recommend that they be placed in child care when available. Appropriate dress for services is business casual: most men wear a sport coat and tie and most women wear dresses or dress pants. A more detailed description of our services can be found here.
