Reading Torah & Leading Services
Shabbat Morning Youth Programs
Or Zarua's services are traditional and participatory. We have no choir, no musical instruments, and we read the entire weekly Torah portion. Our inspiring, egalitarian services are always led by members of the congregation. We welcome your children to sit with family or to join us in the Or Zarua Youth services which are held to coincide with our Shabbat morning services.
DAILY MINYAN
There's morning minyan 365 days per year at Or Zarua, and the public is always welcome. On Shabbat Shaharit begins at 9:00 am; on Sundays at 8:45 am; and during the week minyan is at 7:15 am (unless there's Musaf, in which case minyan begins at 7:00 am). Check the calendar to confirm timing.
SHABBAT
This time is the most special part of the week and newcomers are invited to come to see for themselves what makes worshipful Jewish observance so exceptional. Each of our Shabbat services has its own character, shaped by the people who have chosen to bring Or Zarua into their lives.
KABBALAT SHABBAT
Kabbalat Shabbat services are held weekly as the sun goes down. This intimate and warm gathering provides a relaxing yet festive mood with which to greet Shabbat. If you haven't been to synagogue on a Friday evening recently, you owe it to yourself to experience this wonderful transition from a hectic week to an uplifting Shabbat.
SHABBAT MORNING
Our weekly Saturday morning Shabbat service is always well attended and yet retains the intimacy and involvement which characterizes davening at Or Zarua. We all look forward to participation in our often spirited discussion of the week's parashah and related issues. Holiday services are also held at Or Zarua to commemorate and celebrate all of the Jewish festivals.
