Weekly Prayer and Study


Shabbat Evening Services occur weekly at 7:30 p.m.  A special First Friday Service occurs on the first Friday of each month beginning at 6:00 p.m.  The time of each week's Shabbat evening service can be found by viewing our calendar.
There is a Family Service each Sunday morning in our Sanctuary from 11:30 a.m. - Noon when Religious School is in session.
Weekday Morning Service - For early risers, or people who have a few minutes to spare before going to work, this is a midweek spiritual check-in on Wednesday mornings.  We pray, sing, and hopefully leave inspired, having shared a laugh or two along the way.  7:45 a.m. - 8:10 a.m.  Enter through the office doors on James Street and come upstairs to the Sanctuary.


Torah Study - Join us weekly on Shabbat morning as we explore the mysteries and wonders of Torah, and discuss their meanings in our lives.  All are welcome, dress is casual, no prior knowledge is necessary, and coffee is served.  We begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 10:00 a.m. (if there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah) or 10:30 a.m. (including a short Shabbat morning service).  Enter through the office doors on James Street.  We meet in the large double classroom at the top of the stairs.
Talmud - Bring your lunch on Tuesdays from Noon-1:00 p.m.  Don't be intimidated when you hear that we're studying the Talmud.  All of our studies are in English, and all insights are valued.  You'll enjoy the twists and turns the Talmud takes as these 2000-year-old teachings inform our lives today.  Enter through the glass doors on Duke Street.
Book Group - Join us as we get together to discuss books of mutually-approved content  Our previous selections have included Elie Wiesel's Wise Men and Their Tales and David Hartman's A Heart of Many Rooms.  We meet from noon to 1:00 p.m. on Mondays.  Enter the building through the glass doors on Duke Street.

For all of these, we would suggest emailing the Temple office at office@shaarai.org or calling 717.397.5575 before attending for the first time, just to make sure things are happening on schedule.
