If you are attending in person, please observe the following guidelines:

 

  • Enter through Hesed Shel Emet side entrance (use sidewalk facing the golf course)

  • Face mask covering both nose and mouth must be worn at all times by attendees

  • Follow social distancing protocols by maintaining 6 feet apart from those outside your own household

We invite you to join us in fellowship, worship and celebration.  While our services are reflective of Conservative Judaism, they are conducted with a modern adaptation you will find to be comfortable, engaging and lively.  We have thought-provoking Torah discussions and interactions that encourage the entire congregation to get involved.  If it has been some time since you’ve attended a service, you will likely hear familiar tunes and you will certainly find others ready to help with a page number!

 

Services are held in the lower sanctuary, unless otherwise noted.  Please use the southern facing side door (by the mailbox, facing the golf course).

See our monthly calendar for service dates and times.
