Unless otherwise noted, Shabbat services start at 7:30pm every Friday night, and at 10:00am every Saturday morning.
Weekday Torah Study takes place every Thursday in our Social Hall from 10:30am to 12:30pm. That group started reading at the beginning of the Torah on Thursday, October 8, and will pick up each week where they previously left off until they finish reading the Torah.
|Yizkor During Passover
In many Jewish communities it is customary to recite Yizkor, the public memorial and mourning service, four times throughout the year – on Yom Kippur, and also during Sukkot, Pesach, and Shavuot. In addition to our tradition of holding Yizkor on Yom Kippur morning after the Torah reading, this year we will also hold a Yizkor service on the second Shabbat morning during Passover, instead of the Torah discussion that we usually hold during Saturday morning services. This means that the
Pesach Yizkor service will take place on Saturday, April 30th, starting at approximately 11:30am. During this service, we will not read aloud the congregation’s full memorial list of names as we do at Yom Kippur, but instead will invite those present to say aloud all of the names of the people they’re remembering that day.
Please contact Rabbi David for more information.
