Services: Who, What, Where and When

Services at  Temple Beth Israel of Highland Park and Eagle Rock are a learning experience.  During the service, members and guests are encouraged to raise their hand if they have a question about the structure of the service, the meaning of a prayer, the interpretation of the Torah portion or a particular Jewish practice.

Our services are heartfelt. We sing a lot. It's Zoom, so we sing out of sync! Everyone is welcome, and we love to see your face on-screen! 

Shabbat morning, every Saturday since 1930 (at 10:15AM.)

Everyone is welcome, no matter your level of Jewish experience. We'll go through some traditional prayers, English readings, and learn about the week's Torah portion. If you're not sure about the service or what to expect, just ask us!

First Fridays at 7PM (each month)

On the first Friday night of each month, Rabbi Rosner hosts a brief, intimate, conversational service to welcome the Shabbat holiday. 

Tot Shabbat (second Friday night at 5:30PM) 

Family Fridays (second Friday night at 6:00PM) 

Kid friendly services + Pizza 

Third Fridays Indian Shabbat in the Garden, 7pm in Summer, 6pm in Winter (each month)  

This service is usually lay-led and includes melodies popularized by Shlomo Carlebach and Moshav Band. It is usually followed by an Indian vegetarian or vegan dinner. Tickets are required for dinner but you can come to the service without tickets! :-)

Check our main page for a link to dinner tickets (sometimes not available until a week or two before).

First time in a long time? Here's how it works...

Prayers, Hebrew and English

We use the Siddur Sim Shalom for Shabbat and Festivals, which is used by most Conservative and some Reform congregations. You can download a PDF here to follow along!

Our services have plenty of Hebrew, but also plenty of English. The Siddur Sim Shalom is mostly Hebrew with English translations, but the Reform Siddur  Mishkan T'Filah has English transliterations (sounding out the Hebrew in English letters) of all the prayers we read and sing. You can view it here.

Family Friday services use the Tot Shabbat siddur (it all fits on one page, with transliterations!)

Conservatish?

People who grew up in a Conservative or a Conservative-leaning Reform congregation report that they feel comfortable with our services. We are friendly, and we try to make everyone feel welcome.

What about kids?

Our Family Friday services are tailored to families and children of all ages, but kids are welcome to join in (and out) of all of our programming. All of our services contains some explanation of what we're doing and why, and a mix of Hebrew and English. 
 

Kiddush?

Services are usually followed by a light refreshment and sometime a giant meal, check the newsletter for details!

Don't worry if it's been awhile!

We'll get you up to speed.  Our goal is to support each individual's understanding of Judaism and unique relationship with G-d. Our members are warm and welcoming, diverse and understanding; we're a community of family and friends, and we'd love to have you.
