Erev Shabbat

Congregational Service, 6:00 PM

Shabbat Morning

Torah Study, 8:45 AM--9:45 AM

Congregational Service, 10:00 AM

Chapel Service, 10:15 AM

During Torah Study, join fellow congregants for a lively discussion of Torah and other books of the Hebrew Bible each Saturday morning at 8:45 AM. The study ends in time for the morning Shabbat service. As with our Shabbat services, newcomers and visitors are invited to study with us.
The Chapel Minyan also offers members of the congregation the opportunity to sharpen their skills in chanting Torah or Haftarah. Instead of a sermon, our Rabbis moderate a group discussion of the weekly Torah portion and guide our study of related rabbinic texts.
