Shabbat Services

Shabbat Evening Service

We hold Shabbat Evening Services at 7:30 PM in the sanctuary on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Friday evening of the month. These are multi-access services that are live streamed. During the pandemic when many of our congregants feel more comfortable attending services remotely, we are offering a Zoom service on the 4th Friday of the month. On that night, there is no service in the sanctuary. 

During a typical evening service, we celebrate Shabbat with prayer, song and reflection. Music is an important part of our services with our melodies  reflecting a wide variety of Jewish composers, contemporary and traditional. Services are led by Rabbi Meyer and our cantorial soloist, Peter Haley. We use Mishkan Tefilah, the prayerbook of the Reform Movement. Prayers are recited both in Hebrew and in English.

Our Shabbat Evening Service generally includes a Torah service, as well as a sermon or D’var Torah (Torah teaching)  or a study session led by Rabbi Meyer. We also include a special prayer for healing for all those who are ill. If you would like to request a name to be added to our healing list, please contact the Temple office.

Our services are participatory – we encourage everyone to join in. All are welcome to worship services at Tree of Life. Our Oneg Shabbat reception will resume in the Reyner Family Social Hall when the prevailing conditions allow for it. 

Please note that the time may change for special services or holiday services.

Shabbat Morning B-Mitzvah Service

Our B-Mitzvah are called to the Torah during special Shabbat morning services that start at 10:30 AM. The B-Mitzvah lead prayers, read Torah and deliver a brief teaching (d'rash). These services are a wonderful opportunity for our community to celebrate with the B-Mitzvah families. All are welcome.
