Our hearts (and our Zoom rooms) are open to everyone, and we will re-open our physical doors as soon as it is safe to do so.

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 10AM.)

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. 

Family Fridays (second Friday night at 6:30PM)

Cantor Laurie leads a musical service geared towards families and children of all ages. 

 

 

 

 

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.

Who's who?

Our online Shabbat services are conducted by Cantor Ken Rothstein and Rabbi Jason Rosner, assisted by members of the congregation (that could be you!) 

Most weeks Saturday Shabbat services feature a drash (commentary on the Torah portion) by a congregation member (that could be you too!)

First Friday night services are led by Rabbi Rosner, and Family Friday services are led by Cantor Lori Rimland-Bonn. 

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. 
 

Online Kiddush?

We all miss the Kiddush lunch that would normally follow our in-person Shabbat morning services. If you like, you can join us online as we say the blessings over wine (or grape juice) and challah, though you'll have to bring your own for now.

Join us to experience our interactive service.  Come learn with us.

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.
