We welcome you to attend services at Adath Israel.  Shabbat services are conducted every Friday evening at 7:30pm. During the summer months there is a reduced schedule.  Once a month, we offer a shorter, 45-minute “Shabbat Before Bedtime” program at 6:00pm for young children and families.  This program is followed by our regular Shabbat service at 7:30.  One Friday evening service, per month, is lay lead.

Saturday Shabbat services are held once a month, beginning at 9:30am.  On a second Saturday morning, each month, we hold a lay lead learning service in which students practice portions of the Shabbat service.

Religious services are held on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and all other major religious holidays throughout the year.  The schedule of services can be found on our calendar.

Shabbat Before Bedtime

Designed for our younger families, Shabbat Before Bedtime is a short program of Shabbat songs and prayers, percussion instruments, dancing, and parading about the Sanctuary.  Come join the fun!  Bring your children and grandchildren. Led by our Ritual Chair, Katherine Kohrman.  No preregistration is required for our Shabbat Before Bedtime programming.  Just come ready to have a good time.  Guests are always welcome.
