Our services are traditional egalitarian, with both women and men participating equally. We use the Conservative movement’s Siddur Sim Shalom prayerbook.
Erev Shabbat (Friday evening) services are Carlebach style with lots of singing (and musical instruments depending on the time of year). The service starts at 6:15 pm and lasts no longer than an hour.
Shabbat morning services start at 9:30 am, usually finishing around 12 pm, with a kiddush following the service. Note that Kehilat Nitzan follows a triennial cycle for Torah reading.
Wednesday Morning Minyan Shacharit services start at 7 am and last for approximately one hour, including a light bagel breakfast following the service. Join us to add a Jewish hour to your week and also aid in the important mitzvah of helping others recite the Mourner’s Kaddish.
Audio files – You can listen to or download audio files that provide our congregation’s version of Shabbat prayers sung by our first rabbi, Rabbi Ehud Bandel, including songs from our musical Friday night services.
If you want to help lead parts of our service, contact our gabbai, Sammy Pinkus.
