Summer Services Begin July 3

The first Friday night Summer Service will be on Friday, July 3rd. These services will be held in the Social Hall, beginning at 7:30 PM, and last approximately 30 minutes. These services are informal and are conducted by the various arms of the Temple. The Yahrzeit list is read at every service. Dress is casual. Masks and social distancing will be required and enforced.

There will be one special digital service led by Rabbi Mickey Baum, where he will be using an electronic white board to lead the service. We had this type of service in the past and everyone enjoyed them and requested that we have them again.  

Weather permitting, we may have some of these services outdoors on the back lawn.

Each of these services gives us a nice start to the summer Sabbath. Please come and join us. If you would like to participate in any of these services, please contact the representative for that service or the temple office.  We look forward to seeing you at any of these services. 

Below is a list of the dates and each Temple arm that will be conducting the service.
