Our daily Minyan led by trained volunteers is held at 6 pm, Monday through Thursday. This service offers an opportunity for daily prayer and the recitation of Kaddish for a loved one.
Emanu El is our spiritual home. As a house of prayer, we gather together in congregational worship to seek God's presence, to share our lives as Jews, and to be part of the community of Israel. Some are seeking to discover, some to rediscover, all to experience the richness of our Jewish heritage. Because people come to Emanu El from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and lifestyles, our worship services offer diversity in time and style, blending the traditional with the contemporary in prayer and song.
On Friday evening, as Shabbat begins, worship services are held at 6 pm. Shabbat services feature a diverse rotation of musical accompaniment and worship styles.
We continue the celebration of Shabbat at 10:30 am. Our Chapel service is an informal, participatory service where all are invited to share reading, singing and being part of a warm and welcoming community. At the same time, the worship service in the Barish Sanctuary is led by young adults who are becoming bar or bat mitzvah.
Children & Families
On the first Friday of each month at 6 pm, young families gather for Tot Shabbat, a joyful and informal experience celebrating Shabbat through story and song. Throughout the year there are many other Shabbat experiences for early readers and their families.
