We invite you to participate in our services:
- Be an Usher. Download a copy of the Usher Guide here.
- Be a Gabbai. This requires a bit of Hebrew fluency. Download a copy of the Gabbai instructions here.
- Read Torah. We'd love for you to take an aliyah as often as you wish. You may sign up on our Torah reading schedule, which can be found online here.
- Come regularly. Our services are traditional, with a great deal of chanting and singing in Hebrew. We want you to be comfortable and participate. To that end, we have published a Guide to our services, called “Tefillah Tidbits,“ available online here, or available in a downloadable Booklet here or a Fullsize version here.
