Update on Shabbat Evening and Morning Services

For all of us, this time of viral pandemic is stressful and strange. Many of us who are working are doing so at home, spending long hours in isolation or in unusually close contact with our immediate family members. When we are out of our routine, working in our slippers, and hearing alarming news all day, how can we take a break?

In every age and in every circumstance, the answer to that question has been Shabbat! On Shabbat we lay down the burdens of the week, we re-connect with those we love, and we take time to appreciate the miracle of creation and the joy of being alive.

Connect with your Temple family this Shabbat on Zoom!  On Friday, break out your favorite beverage and snacks, and join us for an informal, online Gathering at 5:30 pm to meet, greet, and catch up  with your Temple family, then stay in the Zoom meeting for musical and uplifting Shabbat services beginning at 6:00 pm.

You can  join our Shabbat morning service at 10 am via Zoom as well.

The Gathering and Shabbat Services are FREE and open to all, but for security reasons, you must register in advance to gain access. For the Gathering and Shabbat Evening, click here; for Shabbat morning click here.

We look forward to seeing and hearing you!
We wish you a week of peace and good health,

Rabbi Batsheva Appel                                                                               Cantorial Soloist Marjorie Hochberg

Our Friday evening and Saturday morning services will take place on Zoom, and can also be watched live on our Facebook page. We have asked that people register for the Friday evening service, Saturday morning service, or both by Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm. This will give us enough time before Friday evening's service to get the login information out to everyone.

After registering, you will receive a system-generated confirmation of your registration. You will then receive another, separate email from on Friday afternoon at around 3:30 pm with login information for Zoom.

If you have not used Zoom before, please contact for more detailed instructions on using it.

If you did not register prior to Friday at 3:00 pm, or if you do not want to use Zoom, you can watch a livestream of our services via Facebook Live at
