Pray

Temple Israel welcomes you to join us in prayer, in song and in celebration of Jewish community.

We are an egalitarian Conservative congregation, and together we celebrate our wealth of holidays, life-cycle events and the weekly gift of Shabbat. Services at Temple Israel are warm and communal, conducted by our rabbi and members of our congregation.

Our congregation loves to sing, enjoying a mix of old and new settings of the traditional Hebrew prayers. Our many members who are not fluent Hebrew readers find that they have ample opportunities to learn and participate. The “Lev Shalem” prayer book includes inspiring English readings alongside the Hebrew prayers, as well as translations, transliterations and thought-provoking explanations.

Currently, our services are accessed through Zoom, with the Zoom link supplied to visitors upon request via email. Many have found a surprising intimacy and sense of community in our Zoom services. Within the limits of the medium, services are participatory, with opportunities for individual readings and discussions of the weekly Torah portion. We look forward to praying together in person once more when the COVID-19 risk allows. See the Temple reopening plan for our COVID-19 guidelines.
