Services & Classes

Shabbat Yeshiva and Foundation Courses : (Before Service @ 10:30AM)
What to Expect
The Shul or Synagogue is modeled after the Mishkan or Tabernacle of the Wilderness which in turn is modeled after the heavenly Mishkan. You'll find the Aaron Kodesh (The Ark) containing the Sefer Torah Scrolls. You'll find a Ner Tamid (Eternal Flame) modeled after the "eternal heavenly fire"
A platform known as the Bema (podium) will be used for the reading of the scriptures.
The chairs are arranged in a fashion that will accommodate the viewing of these elements and also our projection devices.
During our Liturgical service and prayers, there will be periods of standing and bowing as an act of reverence before the LORD at different times. The congregation will face East during the prayer of the Shema.
During the Torah Service, the Sefer Torah Scroll is processed around the Shul and greeted by the community with great joy. For us, it is a visible sign and reminder of Yeshua HaMashiach, "The word who became flesh and dwelt among us" (Yochanan 1:14) You'll see the community men, woman, and children come out and meet the Torah as it passes by while reaching out with their Tallit, Tanach or Siddurim to "kiss it". For in Psalm 119:103 says: "How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! The scroll is then lifted displaying the portion to be read before a part of it is chanted out loud. We also include readings from the Haftarah (Prophets & Writings) and from the Brit Chadashah (Apostolic Writings)
Men: preferably Business, or Modest, shirt/polo with slacks, NO SHORTS, clean and groomed, clean jeans and shoes. No tank tops. Men wear kippot on the bema, especially when reading from the Torah. We have guest kippot at the entrance for your convenience. If wearing a Tallit (Prayer Shawl) /Tzit Tzit to our services you must have also a Kippah.
Transparency, Uniformity, and Consistency are part of our community..
Women: do not wear Men's Tallit or Kippoh. Women may cover their heads with a scarf, or a dress hat. Modest dress is required, NO shorts, or Tube Tops. Spaghetti strap, revealing sleeveless blouses or dresses should be avoided.
Children: clean and modest attire appropriate for the age of the child. No open t-shirts. No exposed diapers. Children wearing diapers must always wear bottoms covering the diaper.
Elders and leaders will follow and help maintain these standards throughout the services and around our community..
Conduct in the Shul
Oneg & Havdalah
Following Shabbat services, we have a time of fellowship and a small meal that guests are invited to participate.
If you are visiting for the first time, you are not required to bring food. Simply enjoy the fellowship. Please visit with the Kitchen staff for a list of suggestions of foods to share or simply add an envelope with your contribution to the Tzedaka box and mark it accordingly as an Oneg donation.
Service times varied throughout the year to accommodate for time changes at the end of the Sabbath and special events.
Cameras, Recording & Security
Our common areas and classrooms have cameras for monitoring for safety and security. Taping of our services, recording and pictures of our services are not allowed unless cleared by our senior staff and primarily for special occasions, and ceremonies. Refraining from flash photography and much movement during the services avoids unnecessary distractions.
We offer LiveStream of the Weekly Torah Portion message to all subscribers of our YouTube Channel.
