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 the Siddur Lev Shalem for Sabbath and Festivals prayer book. Published in 2016 by the Conservative movement, Siddur Lev Shalem offers fresh insights into the traditional text, inspirational commentary, revised Hebrew transliterations, and updates to make it both egalitarian and LGBT friendly. All are welcome to any of our services!


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.

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: 7:00 am* and 7:00 pm
Friday: 7:00 am* and 6:00 pm
Saturday: At sundown (check web calendar for exact time)
Sunday: 8:30 am and 6:00 pm

*If a secular holiday falls on a weekday, check web calendar for morning minyan start time.

Traditional and alternative services are offered, as well as participatory services for children and teens. Check the website calendar for details or see this year's High Holy Day Services Schedule. Tickets are required for admission to High Holy Day services. Please contact Temple Emeth’s Executive Director for information.
