Friday Evening Worship
Kabbalat Shabbat worship is an early evening service welcoming Shabbat. Our Kabbalat Shabbat program begins with an informal reception at 6 p.m. featuring snacks along with beverages, followed by a brief but beautiful Shabbat service at 6:30 p.m. The services consist mostly of music and are the perfect way to begin Shabbat. Our services are always Kabbalat Shabbat, except for the 1st Friday of the month when we hold an Erev Shabbat service and on the 3rd Friday of the month when we hold H(OUR) Shabbat worship.
Erev Shabbat worship services are held at 8 p.m. on the 1st Friday of the month from fall to summer, followed by an Oneg Shabbat (reception) after the service.
H(OUR) Shabbat worship services are held at 6:30 p.m. the 3rd Friday of the month from fall to summer. This uplifting musical service is for congregants of all ages – from toddlers to seniors. We sing new and familiar melodies, enjoy the guitar and hear stories. We begin with an oneg (reception) at 6 p.m. prior to services.

Tefilah and Torah

Come to Tefilah or Torah Study or both! Tefilah (prayer) is our informal, casual, participatory Shabbat morning worship that includes a chance to hear Torah read, say Mi Shebeirach, and the Kaddish. Torah Study is held Saturdays at 9:15 a.m. — join Temple Jeremiah for bagels and coffee while studying and discussing the weekly Torah portion. Become one of our Torah Study regulars! Drop-ins are welcome. Each session is a stand alone study. No preparation or previous experience required. For an annotated bibliography of recommended resources for Torah Study, click here.
