ALTERNATIVE SERVICE on occasional Shabbat mornings (approximately every 6 weeks)begin sat 10:00 a.m. This service takes place in the lounge, features a little less liturgy, and engages mind, body, and soul to get the most out of Shabbat. Everyone is welcome.

FRIDAY NIGHT SERVICES are held on the first and third Friday evening of each month; NEW SPEAKER SERIES SERVICE is on the third Friday.

A WEEKLY THURSDAY MORNING MINYAN is held at 9:00 a.m. This is a complete traditional egalitarian morning service with a short Torah reading. Need a little help navigating a weekday service? New to wearing a tallit? Considering wearing tefillin? No worries! We will help you acclimate. Women and men are encouraged to participate. Everyone is welcome.

RIVERFRONT SERVICES during the summer months typically take place on the first and third Fridays from June through early September.
