Religious Services

Pre-Pandemic, our traditional egalitarian Shabbat morning services began at 9:30 a.m. followed by Kiddush. The complete service included a triennial cycle Torah reading. On occasional Shabbat mornings, (approximately every 6 weeks) the ALTERNATIVE SERVICE would begin at 10:00 a.m. This service took place in the lounge, featured a little less liturgy, and engaged mind, body, and soul to get the most out of Shabbat.

SHABBAT EVENING SERVICES turn Friday night into Shabbat as we enter sacred time with songs, Kabbalat Shabbat, and stories.  The service, currently held twice a month on Zoom only, includes Mourner’s Kaddish and concludes with Kiddush and Motzi.

RIVERFRONT SERVICES are held twice a month on Friday evenings in the summer months.  These services start at different times (based on sunset); check the calendar for the time.  We meet at the north end of Riverfront Green Park in Peekskill.  Walking directions and full details are listed in the website announcements.

WEEKLY THURSDAY MORNING MINYAN is held at 9 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.

Our weekday Thursday morning minyan and Saturday morning Shabbat services are being done as hybrid services with both in-person and Zoom options.  Saturday morning Shabbat services begin at 10 AM.  In order for certain parts of the service to take place, we must have at least a minyan.  In our hybrid format, at least six of the minyan must be present in person.  Mourner’s Kaddish is included in each service.

We use multiple siddurim (prayer books) to meet the needs and interests of our diverse community.  On Thursday mornings, we use the Artscroll Siddur and Siddur Sim Shalom.  On Friday evenings, we use Siddur Eit Ratzon and Siddur Sim Shalom.  On Saturday mornings, we use Siddur Lev Shalem and Siddur Sim Shalom.
