Our monthly congregant-led Torah service is conducted mostly in Hebrew and includes prayer, reflections and lots of singing. The weekly Torah portion is chanted, preceded by a brief teaching.

Shabbat morning Torah Study at 9:00, 9:30, or 10:00 AM
Every week there is an opportunity to study the weekly Torah portion together. We begin with a brief morning service, followed by an informal and spirited discussion of the weekly Torah portion. Those with all backgrounds in Torah study are welcome. Start times vary, depending on whether there is a b-mitzvah full Torah service, or Shabbat B’Yachad that week.
Shabbat B’Yachad (Shabbat Together) , Saturday at 10:30
Once a month, we invite families and congregants to join us for a 75-minute service that is highly participatory and geared for those who’d like to become more familiar with the prayers in a multi-generational setting. This service is preceded by our regular Torah Study which begins at 9:30 on those days.
Jewish holidays are celebrated at Dor Hadash or in collaboration with neighboring congregations. All services are publicized in the calendar. For questions or more information, please contact Nicole at email@example.com.
