Services are In Person!




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, musical, and participatory! We are so excited for you to join us.

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!

Friday Night Services, Every First & Third Friday at 6:30pm

Our Friday Night Service is a lively, musical service co-lead by Rabbi Weisz and Rhiannon Lewis. Both of our Friday evening services include Shabbat dinner at 6:30, followed by the service at 7. Our First Fridays includes a vegetarian/vegan potluck Shabbat dinner, while our Neighborhood Shabbat on the third Friday of the month includes food from local restaurants nearby TBI! If you already made dinner plans, you can always join us for the main service, which begins at 7.

Tot Shabbat - The Gilberg Family Tot Shabbat Program (First Friday night at 5:30PM) 

The Gilberg Family supports Tot Shabbat through their fund at the Jewish Community Foundation - Los Angeles as an example of programming that successfully brings young families into the Highland Park Jewish Community and engages children in Jewish life.

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!)


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. 


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

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.
