Due to the COVID-19 Virus, we are live streaming services at Temple Emanu-El until it is safe for us to congregate in person. There will be a link to the service in the Temple’s Friday afternoon email. If you are not receiving this email, please contact the Temple office. Please note that Summer Lay Led Services have begun.
Due to the COVID-19 Virus, we are also live streaming our Shabbat Mornings – Prayer, Practice and Prophets at the Temple. Again please check the Friday email.
Shabbat morning services are usually on the first and third Shabbat of each month, and our service begins at 9:00. It is not a full service. Rather, we pick one part of the service each week and explore the fixed prayers through song, chants, niggun, and poetry.
We also study aspects of traditional service choreography, and traditional and modern interpretations of prayer. Following prayer and practice, we study the Prophets. The prophetic voice has been central to Reform Judaism. Their voice is timeless. In the turbulent times we live in, it will do all of us well to raise the volume of their call. We aim to complete our Shabbat morning program around 10 A.M.
