Our Services

Temple Emeth holds religious services for both adults and children throughout the year. Our services are egalitarian, highly musical, personalized and creative religious experiences. We use both the Hebrew and English texts of the renowned Sim Shalom prayer book. All are welcome!


Kabbalat Shabbat Friday evening service begins weekly at 6 pm.

Shabbat services are held in the sanctuary on Saturday mornings beginning at 9:30 am. Kiddush follows.

Tot Shabbat, a service for preschool children ages 2-6 years held on selected Shabbat mornings 10:30-11:30 am during the school year, includes music, movement, and stories with a Shabbat theme, followed by a snack of challah and juice. Parents, grandparents and caregivers are welcome! Check website calendar for dates.

Daily Minyan

Morning and evening daily minyan, held in the Chapel, provides for the spiritual needs of both Temple members and non-members in the Jewish community. Please let the leader know if you are observing a Yahrzeit, so that you can be offered an opportunity to lead the service, or to accept an honor.

Minyan times are:

Monday -Thursday: 7 am* and 7 pm
Friday: 7 am* and 6 pm
Saturday: Sundown (check calendar for exact times)
