Service Information

Children are welcome at services!

Children of all ages are always welcome at Mount Zion’s services. We believe that having children in the sanctuary allows them to experience group prayer, learn the tunes and texts of our prayers, and feel the joy of being part of a community. We have a library of children’s books and activity bags filled with fun fidgets that we encourage families to use in the sanctuary if desired. Children are welcome to be kids and make noises, but there are times when watching the service on our closed-circuit TV in the chapel will feel more comfortable. On Friday nights, we also have drop-in childcare available in room 102 staffed with a wonderful caregiver if you or your kids need a break.

How should I dress?

We honor the separateness and sanctity of Shabbat by wearing appropriate attire. Worship attendees dress in various ways; however, you may feel more comfortable in business casual attire.

Friday Evenings

Family Service at 6:30 p.m.
The first Friday of the month, a child-friendly service every month and Shir Tzion (September-June)

Friday Summer Services (June – August) will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will be held on our terrace, overlooking our beautiful garden, when weather permits. We hope this time will enable you to enjoy a spirited service followed by a relaxing Shabbat dinner at home with family and/or friends.

From 5:30 to 6:00 we gather for Kabbalat Panim, gathering time including light hors d’oevres. Following the service, from 7:00 to 7:30 we have a brief oneg Shabbat before people go home for Shabbat dinner.
