Our community is a mix of people: married and single; with and without children; straight and LGBTQ; Jewish and not Jewish; many races, ethnicities, and ages; with and without disabilities. We value every soul, young to old, and every person’s contribution to our community.
We know that we are all in this together, and that we each have to find our individual way. We honor each other’s opinions and experiences, we enlighten one another, we agree and disagree. We tell our stories and build bonds of friendship.
Schedule of Services: Friday night services begin at 8. During the school year, Saturday morning religious school begins at 10 and services begin at 11:15.
Fall Classes: Our Religious School begins the Fall session on the Saturday after NYC schools reopen, Saturday 9/10. Join us for a welcome brunch at 9:30 am, followed by classes at 10 and a parent orientation session.
High Holidays: Although the holidays aren't until late on the secular calendar, it's not too soon to check in with the office! Special first-time attendee tickets are available for those new to our community. Our HHD observances will begin with Selichot on Saturday September 24.
Accessibility: We would like to do our best to welcome and accommodate anyone we can. Our building is not fully physically accessible for wheelchair users or those who cannot navigate stairs, but there is a ramp to the outside door, and the sanctuary, community room, and ground floor restrooms are accessible. Please call the temple office at 718-282-1596 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about accessibility.
Shabbat morning classes focus on community-building and Jewish learning in a lively, interactive setting. During the week, students meet with a partner and their teacher for Hebrew lessons by videochat. Lessons are supplemented with online Hebrew games. For more information about educational opportunities at the Temple, please visit our Education page or download an application form.
For Preschoolers!Shalom Shabbat, our Friday morning Sabbath service for small folk, is every Friday from 10 am to 10:45 am in the Sanctuary. Introduce your little ones to the joy of Shabbat! Join Rabbi Heidi Hoover in celebrating the coming of Shabbat by singing your way through the Friday evening service, followed by the Shabbat blessings (with challah and juice!). No Jewish or Hebrew knowledge is necessary.
As a community, we continue to pray for the complete and full recovery of our beloved Rabbi Emeritus, William Kloner.
